With a strong foundation in the liberal arts, our students participate in programs and activities ranging from performing arts to community service to athletics.

The pairing of the focused arts education with the liberal arts provides a special asset for student-artists and helps to encourage a more confident and personal artistic vision.

The Fine Arts Department at Ohio Wesleyan, created in 1864, was one of America's first college art departments.

Department Features

  • We offer general experience through a broad B.A. program and professional preparation with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Fine Arts majors may concentrate in studio art, art history, or fine arts education.
  • Students have access to our studios 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This helps students meet the high expectations of each course and rise to high levels of achievement.
  • We have designed a rich and balanced program that provides the necessary structure as well as the freedom to grow and explore.
