Visual Art

Augustana's visual art program provides a strong foundation in both the history and the practice of visual art through its focus on basic knowledge. It is particularly suited for students who are in the very early stages of their artistic development.

Art gives you options

After completing the program, students are equipped with a strong foundation in practice and theory. 

Not just for artists

Art can be an ongoing adventure of discovery whether you make it a livelihood or not. Students are encouraged to enter studies in studio practice or art history with no background in art, and without submitting a portfolio.
