Art Major

Lyon College's art department provides students with the tools and techniques necessary to explore and examine their creative, critical, and analytic voice. Combining the liberal arts with a broad studio experience, majors develop the necessary knowledge, technical skill, and commitment to work as an artist today. 

Students are immersed in a creative learning environment and encouraged to cultivate an approach to art informed by traditional two- and three-dimensional art practices, experimental approaches, and new digital technologies. They will participate in regular critiques and interact with faculty and peers in a critical context. This critique system creates an environment that encourages students to try new techniques, solve difficult problems, and push boundaries.

Majors may choose to focus on a particular area as they work closely with faculty to prepare for graduate school, work professionally as artists, or pursue art-related fields.
