About Our Visual Arts Department
Lake Erie College's Visual Arts program is centered on an interdisciplinary studies curriculum that prepares students for exciting careers in the arts. This comprehensive liberal arts approach to learning incorporates intensive studio technique classes, art theory and criticism, and studies in visual culture. The Visual Arts program fosters students' self-confidence and skills by giving them opportunities to think critically, communicate effectively, and market their talents.
All students have the opportunity to exhibit in the B. K. Smith Gallery located in the beautiful Royce Hall for the Fine and Performing Arts. Students work to install their pieces and handle preparatory tasks, including lighting and installation of artwork. Each exhibition opens with a public reception, which provides the invaluable opportunity for students to speak publicly about their work.
Lake Erie College also offers an Arts Management degree for those who love the arts and want to prepare for careers in museums, galleries, and in other nonprofit arts organizations.
