WVSU | West Virginia State University
The purpose of the Department of Art is to provide the student with undergraduate competencies in the theoretical and applied forms and processes of visual art.
 
Catering to both fine arts majors and art education majors, the Department of Art emphasizes the importance of critical thinking, problem solving, and the development of self motivation. Studio courses enable students to develop technical skills and aesthetic judgment in the fine and commercial arts.

Art history courses provide students with socio-historical knowledge and understanding of the art of the past, of Non-Western art, as well as contemporary critical art forms and issues.
