Visual Arts

The Visual Arts at Wooster put the artist at the center of the experience. Our programs offer a range of entry points based on media, skill, or theme, in an open and supportive atmosphere. 

We actively teach the ability to find and solve artistic problems through repeated practice with the process of artistic thinking–collecting inspiration, experimenting with materials, creating and presenting best efforts, and reflecting on the process.
