Students in drawing class

Art (Studio)

Media taught include drawing, oil painting, photography & digital media, ceramics, and hot glass. The major in studio art culminates in a senior exhibition held in the AEGON Gallery located in the Jones Visual Arts Center.


Students who take art courses find connections between the visual arts and other forms of human expression – anthropological, dramatic, historical, literary, and musical. Every course in the art program enrolls students from a broad variety of other disciplines.


Centre’s art curriculum accommodates those who want to begin a career in the visual arts, those who want to double major, those who want to minor, and those who want to take a course or two. Introductory courses are available in all areas of study.

Experiential Learning

Students engage in hands-on learning experiences and reflection to develop skills and increase knowledge retention.

Visiting artists conduct hands-on demonstrations and lectures that enhance the student experience. The AEGON Gallery and the Norton Center for the Arts house strong art collections and faculty often accompany students on trips to local, regional, and national museums and exhibitions. Some of the world's greatest art is available to students who study abroad in England, France, and Mexico.


We're committed to helping students find quality internship experiences in the career area of their choice.

Students have interned at Gwynn Murrill Sculpture Studio (Los Angeles), Corcoran Museum of Art (D.C.), Manifest Gallery and Drawing Center (Cincinnati), Glassbrook (Louisville), San Antonio Museum of Art, Denver Art Museum, Historic Preservation Society of New Orleans, and Neil Patel Design Studio (New York City).


Our extraordinary liberal arts and sciences education prepares students for meaningful lives and careers.

Graduates have pursued careers as professional artists, museum curators, art dealers, and scholars. Studying art at Centre has prepared students to embark on careers in architecture, design, law, and medicine.
