If you enjoy visual expression and the challenges and rewards of the creative process, a major in art could be the right path to a rewarding career. As an art major, you will learn to visually communicate ideas, thoughts, and feelings using many different media such as paints, chalks, clay, photographs, and computer images. You will study the creative process and train your eye to better notice and appreciate the beauty that surrounds you. The result is an education that helps you develop an appreciation, awareness, and understanding of the forms of visual expression. Developing your God-given artistic talents will compliment careers such as communication and languages, advertising, and business. Beyond that, an education in art will help expand your understanding of the world around you.
Consistent with your desires for expression and growth through the art process, the Walla Walla University Art Department provides quality instruction and practice. Classes emphasize both classical and non-traditional approaches at once. In this program you become aware of both the past wealth of tradition and the expanding doors of the future and are suited upon graduation to serve in a variety of ways in the art world.
