Whether you’re a classical artist who paints, sculpts or draws, or an artist whose canvas is a computer screen, Lakeland University will help you flourish. Our two art major options – art with a studio emphasis and art with a graphic design emphasis – are designed to meet your specific needs and make you stand out to potential employers in your chosen profession.
Broad spectrum knowledge
All art majors at Lakeland University will learn time-tested art theories and techniques. Traditional classes in design, drawing, color theory and art history are in the core academic mix. Later, students gravitate toward their true artistic love.
Lakeland features a “Mac Lab” that includes the latest software for graphic design applications.
Art at Lakeland
When our art students produce great work, we like to make sure it's seen and appreciated by others.
At Lakeland, excellence is regularly showcased, through our senior exhibits and the school year-ending student exhibition. That popular annual event, at the Bradley Art Gallery, features up to 500 pieces of students' "A" level work from all disciplines of art.
Senior exhibits provide our talented graduating artists with the opportunity to display their work to peers and visiting family and friends. Each senior gives a brief presentation and answers questions from members of the audience.
The students prepare the work, display the work and promote their role in the exhibit.
