The Edgewood College Art Department offers opportunities for all students to engage in the study and practice of visual art and design. Majors and minors will be prepared for careers, continued study, civic engagement, and lifelong practice. Our students and faculty are fostered and developed by Gold LEED certified studios and resources in The Stream, including green studio practices and the Edgewood College Gallery. Visual art majors include multiple areas for skill development: art and design, art education, art history, art therapy, graphic design, and web design. Our mission is to develop students’ creativity, aesthetic awareness, technical skills, capacity for visual thinking, and imagination. We promote risk taking, courage and patience to align these skills with the college mission to build a resilient, just and more compassionate world.
