The Art Department provides Wartburg students the ability to communicate with discipline and imaginative understanding about the visual world and its design. Through appreciation, experience, and production, art students broaden their creative and critical abilities and share these new skills through creating works of art.

The Art Department offers a variety of academic and studio courses in traditional and technology-based media. The limited size of classes and open attitudes of faculty encourage individual attention and a close working relationship. Through advanced courses and independent studies, students may pursue individual interests.
