At Muhlenberg, Studio Art and Art History are housed together in the Art Department, located in the Baker Center for the Arts. We believe that each discipline informs the other, providing students with a more complete understanding of their area of interest. We offer both a major and minor in studio art. Our major is distinctive in offering students areas of concentration in a medium of their choice and in the opportunity for students to participate in a Senior Thesis Exhibition as an extension of the senior capstone.
As part of the liberal arts, all 100 level studio classes are open to students from any discipline and fulfill the general education distribution requirement for art. We offer studio courses in drawing, painting, printmaking, digital and darkroom photography, digital media, and sculpture. In addition faculty teach interdisciplinary and special topics courses including first year seminars and short-term study abroad. Students at all levels receive one-on-one attention in small classes capped at 15 and have daily access to all of the studio facilities.
