Visual Arts

Studying the visual arts at Ithaca will have you at the easel, behind the lens, on screen, in the studio, and in the gallery. Our programs encourage you to explore your art and find new and exciting ways to share it with others. Art and art history majors develop an understanding of design, painting, sculpture, computer graphics, and printmaking. Students pursuing film, photography, and visual arts or cinema and photography are encouraged to explore the whole spectrum of visual culture, from digital video production to drawing. Art education students hone their creative skills while learning how to teach the next generation of painters, sculptors, and illustrators.

Small classes and accomplished faculty mean the opportunities at Ithaca are nearly endless: our facilities accommodate everything from sheet metal sculpture to digital imaging, silkscreen to computer animation.
