Visual Arts

The Visual Arts Department at the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts provides students with a solid foundation in the visual arts field. The course of study includes instruction in traditional media; drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, printmaking and photography, as well as newer forms, such as digital media and mixed media. The curriculum provides a balance between technical skill acquisition and concept development through emphasis on art history, design and aesthetics. Study in this program results in the development of an individualized artistic portfolio that prepares a student for further study in college or a professional career.
