Complimenting a liberal-arts core curriculum, the WJU Art program fosters the creative process and provides students with a broad and diverse grounding in the studio arts-encompassing drawing, painting, three-dimensional design (object making), and sculpture, as well as well as familiarity with art history. Traditional studio experience is integrated with contemporary art forms so that students are exposed to the full range of studio art. The studio art minor also provides students with the opportunity to exhibit their art. The Art program assists in the students' preparation for instruction and practice in the visual arts, preparation for professional pursuits at the graduate level, and professional life in the business sector. Students can readily pair study in art with study of a wide variety of disciplines and majors to enhance their liberal arts educational experience and opportunities. Students interested in pursuing an Art Minor should meet with Prof. Whitehead.
