Where Creativity Meets Passion!
Creativity is one of the most sought-after skills in the workforce today. Art strengthens your manual dexterity, your mental acuity, it reduces stress and provides a lifetime of enjoyment to yourself and others. Many artists are making a good living creating, exhibiting, and selling their art. Through art, you will learn to express yourself, communicate with others, and to better understand the people and world around you.
The C-SC Difference
If art and artistic expression are your passion, you’re in the right place! We don’t just teach art here at Culver-Stockton, we experience it! Use your imagination to craft unforgettable pieces to show on campus or area art shows.
You’ll have the opportunity to join an active Kappa Pi, an International Collegiate Art Honors Society, along with the art club, Mosaic. You will show your work in the college gallery and local, regional and national juried shows. Many of our students win awards and go on to become successful artists or continue on to graduate school.
Don’t miss out on our Arts Abroad course that travels to Europe every two years to further build on your studies. Each senior participates in a senior capstone show that focuses on a unified body of work. Your instructors are award-winning, exhibiting artists who are eager to teach you the media, methods and skills to elevate your artistic career.
