Human beings are an intensely creative species. As such, they have always found expression—have always conceived of themselves and their world—through art. Art majors at Lakeland both study and contribute to this history of human creativity.

Art majors at Lakeland College develop their creative potential through the process of building a portfolio for either a marketable career in art, placement in a graduate program, or enriching their lives with a rewarding means of visual expression. In addition to hands-on coursework in a wide variety of disciplines, art majors also gain practical experience through internships in the field and exhibiting their art in the Bradley Art Gallery in the Annual Student Art Exhibition and in their capstone Senior Exhibit.

An art major at Lakeland College may choose to follow one or two directions of study: the Graphic Arts Emphasis and/or the Studio Emphasis. Both emphases are under the instruction of a diverse faculty who are all practicing artists in the fields they teach.

Art courses are designed to develop one’s perceptual skills through:

  • the use of a broad range of media and tools in a variety of art disciplines;
  • examination of the visual elements of line, shape, value, texture, and color;
  • the development of original visual ideas as they produce works of art;
  • discussion about works of art through the critique process;
  • the presentation of their artwork, both professionally and competitively.

Associate Professors: Denise Presnell-Weidner and William R. Weidner
