ART Department of Visual Arts  logo

The Visual Arts faculty of GSW has the mission of providing our students with an environment conducive for discovery, exploration and learning. The department emphasizes growth and development of a strong conceptual foundation for each student equally grounded in both theory and practice. A solid foundation is provided in basic skills and craft that are then expanded upon based on each student’s conceptual direction. Upon completion of foundation courses students select a studio concentration from a variety of areas, including; Painting, Drawing, Sculpture, Ceramics, Photography, Printmaking, Digital Arts, and the only Glass program in Georgia. The program prepares students for a variety of careers in the visual arts by providing a solid foundation in studio art, art history, and critical theory. Experimentation with and a commitment to materials are encouraged, along with an awareness of how art functions within the larger cultural context.

The department of Visual Arts faculty are accomplished and widely exhibited artists, who encourage students through individual attention, careful advisement, and educational opportunities for future careers in art as socially responsible artists.
