Visual Art Department

Rudy Vargas

The Visual Arts Faculty welcomes students to explore a wide range of media for the purpose of developing effective communication skills through the conceptual and analytical comprehension of images. We believe expression of the visual arts serves humanity. This creative endeavor promotes the development of critical observation, a strong foundation for communication skills and encourages the investigation of the natural world and the multicultural, social and political elements of a global society, and also encourages students to explore both traditional and contemporary fields.

The Visual Arts Department supports the mission of the University and encourages students to pursue lifelong learning and the development and practice of their discipline. We offer Bachelor of Arts degrees in Art and in Art Education with EC-12 teacher certification and a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Art Education.
