Philosophy and Goals
The Art Department at Limestone University is one of the many departments that falls under the Division of Arts and Letters. The Art Department seeks to develop the creative potential of its majors and to equip students for future careers in art. Specifically, the Department's objectives are to provide students with a sound foundation for work-related experiences in art, to prepare students for advanced degrees in their particular fields, to develop students' visual perception and sensitivity with an understanding of the aesthetic process, and to afford students a traditional and comprehensive background in the liberal arts. Small classes and close student-faculty interaction are the foundation for developing those objectives.
Limestone's Studio Art program is designed to provide a solid foundation for vocations in art related fields. The curriculum encourages research, creativity, conceptual thinking, and craftsmanship as practical on the job training. Internships are available. Graduates have successful careers as interior designers, craftsmen, artists, art supply and gallery owners, graphic designers, window dressers, world travelers, consultants, and grant writers. Each of Limestone's degrees prepares students for graduate studies.
