Not Grandma’s Art Class

Your study of art isn’t confined within four walls of a classroom. Coursework frequently includes these activities:

  • Field trips
  • Gallery exhibitions
  • Guest lecturers
  • Internships
  • Portfolio seminars
  • Research assignments
  • Visits with professional artists

Art course offerings include introductory, intermediate and advanced courses in two-and three-dimensional art. Studio courses offer training in observation, technical skills and expression of ideas through artistic form and imagery. The combination of lecture courses and studio training helps you experience and develop awareness and appreciation of cultural periods and artistic achievement.

Art Exhibitions

Observing and experiencing the art of others is as important as pushing your skills. Wingate University has three art galleries in the George A. Batte, Jr. Fine Arts Center where students study and view artwork by fellow students, their professors and world-renowned artists.
