Visual Arts & Design


  • Mission Statement

    Art is the universal language through which we express our common aspirations and experiences. As such, it has always been a channel for appreciating and understanding the diversity of humankind. In contemporary society the use of visual media has expanded rapidly. People who formerly typed documents now design web pages. More studies are indicating that children who experience the visual arts are more successful in their other studies. Attendance at art museums is at an all time high. The need to experience, understand and successfully create visual media is increasing. The Department of Visual Arts and Design is prepared to meet these needs.

    Faculty: All of our faculty are practicing professionals. WSU-DOVAD takes pride that the faculty demonstrate the level of excellence we expect of our students.
