Overview

Why study the Art program from Westfield State University

The visual arts programs at Westfield State University incorporates a curriculum consistent with C.A.A. guidelines through the exploration of traditional and emerging mediums. The Art Department offers a BA in Art with areas of concentration in Graphic Design, Illustration, Animation, Art History and Fine Arts, comprised of Painting, Printmaking, and Sculpture. The Department also offers four minors in Art, Fine Art, Graphic Design, and Animation.  Each concentration's and minor's objectives are to develop technical knowledge and expertise appropriate to each discipline.  

All concentrations share a common Art Major foundation program that lead into the concentration specializations in the final two years of study. This foundation program is of critical significance as it provides each student a comprehensive background in color, form, structure and design.  Additionally, our students have the opportunity to participate in professional internships, capstone and thesis classes, the creation of campus journals, and the annual Student Art Exhibition.  The Art Depertment's Mission Statement and Department Outcomes reflect these ideas and concepts.

The art studios in The Catherine Dower Center for Performing and Fine Arts are open to all art majors, minors and students that are taking art classes for all of their studio-related projects.  All courses are open to the university’s students who meet the proper prerequisites of each class. The professors at Westfield State encourages student experimentation and independence of thought in a creative environment.  Due to our comfortable the studio and lecture class size, you'll have the advantage of working one on one with these professors who are professional practitioners in their fields of study.  Trips to regional museums and galleries are a regular part of the department’s art classes along with presentations and workshops with regional and national visiting artist.
