The Department of Art and Art History is dedicated to teaching studio art, art education, and the history of art and to advising majors in an atmosphere that encourages cooperation and independence among faculty and students.
In the Studio Art major or minor, you will hone your creative thinking skills and work on your visual expression through a series of studio courses, beginning with foundations in drawing and design. As you progress through the program, you’ll complete studio work in ceramics, sculpture and painting. Studio Art majors finish their experience at W&J with a senior art show in the Olin Fine Art Gallery.
Beyond the Classroom
Students have a wide array of opportunities for research, internships, conferences, and networking beyond the classroom that give them an advantage to prepare for life after W&J.
