Department of Art
Practitioners and Participants
Our changing world challenges artists to become flexible practitioners and participants who can think, research, organize and produce work that transforms people, places and our times. The power of art lies in artists connecting themselves in reciprocal relationships with their public, in order to create a more humane life relevant to their time and place.
The Department of Art at Georgia College prepares you to be an art practitioner with skills and values that make you an active and responsible participant in society. We will prepare you to engage in questions of self-expression, artisanship, identity, community, values, politics and meaning.
We balance studio work, history and theory courses and organize them around a combination of activities. These include: various teaching methods in your courses, visiting artist experiences, exposure to contemporary art through the Blackbridge Gallery on campus, independent learning opportunities and a senior project and exhibition.
