Are you a problem-solver? Do you imagine what hasn't been? Do you want to give form to your ideas? You may be an artist! Or perhaps you would just like to learn more about art in order to visit museums, start a collection, improve your visual literacy, or broaden your understanding of the world and its possibilities. Art is about all of these things. Living in a culture where you're deluged with images and where visual communication is increasingly important, it's more critical than ever to understand how and why art affects the viewer.

 

The Clarion University Art Department boasts a diverse collection of faculty with a broad range of backgrounds and interests.

 

The department's small student-faculty ratio ensures that you receive individual attention, and co-curricular professional opportunities are available through internships and employment in the department. Through art, learn to use your imagination, ambition, and talent to realize your ideas and become a citizen in a visual world.
