Art students at Kenyon learn to be visually expressive and insightful about ideas they explore within the context of a liberal arts curriculum.
As one former student put it, "Being an art major did not mean that I had to forget about my music and my writing. Instead, I was encouraged to incorporate them into my work."
Students take courses in a range of media and critique the work of their peers. They learn not only to make art but also to articulate the process of making art, with all of its joys and frustrations. Courses are offered in a wide array of media, including drawing, sculpture, painting, photography, printmaking, digital imaging, book arts, installation, and video art. Members of the art faculty at Kenyon are active exhibitors of their own work locally, nationally, and internationally.
