The Art Program is designed to increase the student’s awareness and understanding of art and its relationship to society within a broad liberal arts background. The art major prepares the student to be a practicing artist, to enter graduate school for further professional schooling, or to teach art at either the elementary or secondary level. The program also seeks to provide art experiences for application to problem solving, the use of leisure time, and to create a fuller and richer visual life. Students, faculty members, and other art professionals have the opportunity to display their works in the art gallery in Art Hall on the Fort Lewis College campus.
A minor in art is available for students majoring in other disciplines. A minor in art history is available for art majors and for students majoring in other disciplines.
Prerequisite Statement: For all ART classes requiring ART 101, ART 109, ART 110 and/or ART 210 as prerequisites, a minimum grade of C- must be earned in each course.
