Faculty Artists

Our faculty are all practicing artists who have received regional or national recognition. No teaching assistants are used in classrooms, and students get one-on-one attention from professors in a nurturing environment.

Dedicated Facilities

Art students use facilities specifically dedicated to their area of concentration. Specialized studios for graphic design and sculpture are in the Carr Education-Fine Arts Building, while ceramic students use the state-of-the-art ceramic studio at the Mayer Museum. Most classes are held in smart classrooms with projectors, computer connections and internet access.
