Art Major

The art major offers students the tools and skills to become fluent in the practice of their chosen artistic medium. Our program is rich and varied, introducing students to a variety of techniques and media as well as grounding them in the history of art as a means for understanding the many ways in which visual problems have been solved in the past. A curriculum that combines hands-on practice, creative thinking, and visual problem-solving enables our majors to develop their own voices and visions. The culmination of the art major is the Senior Gallery Exhibition in the Sinclair Galleries.

Art majors have completed internships at the Ceramics Center in Cedar Rapids, K. Caraccio Studio in New York City, the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, and many other art-related businesses, galleries and museums.
