Lycoming's art program offers all the benefits of a standalone art school while also providing a traditional liberal arts education, giving students exciting, inspiring opportunities and opening their minds to broader possibilities. Our art department is recognized for its innovative program, cutting-edge digital design, and exceptional faculty of teachers and practicing professional artists. The art history program gives students both a thorough background of art in the context of broader cultures as well as a solid understanding of basic artistic principles. Our engaging studio art curriculum provides students with a strong foundation in the seven-course art core, which teaches the essential skills, grammar, and history of visual language. Using this foundational knowledge, students go on to explore a variety of creative art forms to develop a professional portfolio. Our students graduate equipped with everything they need to succeed as working professional artists, graphic/web designers, photographers, teachers, art therapists, conservators, curators, gallerists, animators, or in their pursuit of a higher degree.
