Department Chair: Joel Libby

Joel grew up in the San Joaquin Valley of California where he spent countless hours tending his family’s walnut orchard.  Those formative years of orchard related activity served to foster a deep seeded hatred for Walnuts and helped prompt his exodus from The Golden State to The Northwest.  Joel studied art at Walla Walla College, The Laguna College of Art and Design, Avondale College, and most recently The Academy of Art University.  His interests in art are many and varied but his primary focus is on historical illustration.  Joel began teaching at Walla Walla Univeristy in 2014
