Art at KWC
The Kentucky Wesleyan Art Department offers studio, art education, graphic design and visual communications degree programs. We design our programs to provide you with an appreciation of design and visual arts as well as an understanding of how design and art are created.
Foundation courses introduce you to vocabulary and hands-on experience with a variety of materials, including computer technologies. If you major in art, you will develop the skills necessary for future careers in various art fields (including art education and graphic design) and you will be well-prepared for graduate studies in traditional studio art.
All Art majors are required to have a senior exhibition. This is an independent studio course in which you will create a consistent body of work that clearly demonstrates the techniques, concepts and methods of your chosen major. This work, along with with examples of earlier work, will be your Senior Exhibition.
Talent scholarships are available to all art majors and minors. Scholarship values vary and are renewable based on continuing a major or minor within the art program.
We offer portfolio reviews to non-applicants, but scholarships for art (as well as other type of financial aid) are awarded only after you have gained admission to Kentucky Wesleyan College and submitted your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) results.
