The Art program at Ohio Dominican University prepares the next generation of smart, innovative, and conscientious art professionals to become leaders in the local community and, ultimately, the world at large. Students develop the habits of collaboration, critical thinking and reflection. The program also helps them with the development of the fundamental concepts underlying all of the visual arts.
Courses revolve around the goals of aesthetic and technical development, artistic exploration and mastery, interdisciplinarity, and the historical concept that art is one of the truest reflections of culture and society. As a liberal arts institution, Ohio Dominican educates the whole person. In doing so, students learn to create systems for effective visual communication in a variety of media that are informed by a well-rounded education and a profound sense of social responsibility integral to Ohio Dominican University’s Catholic and Dominican heritage.
