Close up of student paining


The Art Department encourages students to bring the whole of their spiritual, creative, and intellectual experience to the learning process.

You'll receive one-on-one time with experienced professors who know your name and you'll have ample opportunities to investigate different forms of media, including ceramics, design, drawing, painting, and printmaking. By exploring the aesthetic limitations and possibilities within rules of composition and design, students hone their skills in creative problem-solving and learn effective visual communication of ideas, while Gonzaga's uncrowded, quiet studios allow for reflection and exploration.

Gonzaga's Art Department offers both a major and a minor in art, in addition to an interdisciplinary Visual Literacy minor, which encourage creativity and innovation and emphasize developing the fundamentals of each artistic medium. The Department curriculum also offers a concentration in art history for art majors and a minor in art history for all non-art majors.
