Department of Art

Welcome to ART @ Western Illinois University


The primary goal of the Department of Art is to offer a curriculum that meets the personal and professional goals of students in Art Education, Graphic Design, and in Studio Arts. To achieve this goal we offer a supportive faculty, and we are an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.

We offer degrees in: Ceramics, Drawing, Metalsmithing/Jewelry, Oil Painting, Watercolor, Intaglio, Lithography, Silkscreen, Sculpture, Graphic Design, and Art Teacher Certification.

To be considered for an art scholarship, grant or tuition waiver, submission of a Portfolio is required before or by the Important Dates deadlines.

Join us and grow in a community of outstanding students, faculty artists, designers, art educators, and art historians.
