Welcome to the Art Department
At our new home in the Adams Center for the Visual Arts
The Art major at Westmont focuses on providing students with a
complete education that develops artistic capabilities and an
understanding of the value that art plays in life. We promote a liberal arts education in which our students pursue a sense of calling along with their career goals. While fostering an
environment that allows students to find their creative voice, visual artists and art historians can explore their own talents in the midst of
critical dialogue, freedom, and discovery. Such an approach to learning addresses all areas of life, building a Christian community of
scholars who, with curiosity and conviction, strive to live out grace
and truth. The Art major at Westmont animates the lives
of individuals and communities.
Westmont graduates in art have attained successful careers in diverse niches of the visual arts, including: graphic design, gallery-centered fine art, photography, illustration, fashion, gallery management, and many others. Our rigorous program, with an emphasis on breadth and sound fundamentals, prepares our graduates with the skills and resourcefulness needed to work as a visual artist in the 21st century.
