The Department of Art is housed in the 4-story Warren Art Building, which sits in the heart of campus and includes two art galleries, several classroom studios, a number of private student studios, color and black and white chemical darkrooms, a Macintosh computer design lab, classrooms, and faculty offices. The art faculty are active professionals who have published scholarly or creative works, exhibited their artworks extensively, and won awards on the state, regional and national levels.

All of our students are counseled toward a broad education in the liberal arts, to strive to create students who think critically and creatively and are knowledgeable about a wide range of disciplines.
