The Silver Lake College Department of Art provides an opportunity for you to develop the creative dimension of your life in preparation for careers, leadership and service. The goals of the Department of Art are to prepare students: to develop competencies in the visual arts by implementing design elements and principles using a variety of media; to participate in dialogue and research regarding diverse cultures and ethnicities, art history, art criticism, and aesthetics in order to creatively interpret and express ideas reflective of the global society; to demonstrate professional preparation by developing foundational knowledge, skills, and dispositions for application in the fine arts, teacher education, or computer graphics; and to use critical thinking in synthesizing the knowledge and skills gained through a liberal arts education fostering a commitment to Christian values, service, and leadership. The Studio Art Degree provides an opportunity for students to develop their creative potential and prepares students for professionalism in the fine arts. Emphasis areas are available in Communication Graphics, Art Administration, and Art Therapy. The Art Education Degree assists the students in developing the advocacy for the arts and for the meaning of the creative process as future teachers and provides the professional training needed to be an art educator. The Licensure Program prepares art education students to receive a teaching license for Early Childhood through Adolescence (birth through age 21).
