What You'll Learn
Faculty challenge students to stretch their artistic vision and to try a variety of mediums. Part of honing artistic talents is being able to discuss their works — which is why Art majors present their original creative works to the campus community during the annual Senior Capstone Exhibition every spring.
Not only will your time at Marietta make you a better artist and creative thinker, but it will also prepare you for graduate school and for a professional career in art and many other related fields. Marietta alumni are illustrators, designers, and art teachers — as well as highly sought employees in a wide range of fields that require creative problem-solving and inventive thinking.
- Is there a space where I can display my art?
Yes! Marietta's Hermann Fine Arts Center, where the Studio Art program is housed, offers two gallery spaces: Gallery 310 and the Atrium Gallery.
- Will I be able to start my own business with a major in Studio Art?
Yes! At Marietta, we encourage our students to develop an entrepreneurial mindset — and our Entrepreneurship Program has fostered many students pursuing a second concentration in Entrepreneurship to start their own or strengthen existing companies.
