If you have a passion for art and design, you’ll feel right at home at George Fox University. We offer instruction in painting, printmaking, ceramics, photography, design, digital art and many other media – all within a Christian art college where professors know you by name.
As an art and design major at George Fox, you will get the chance to develop your artistic gifts and find a curriculum that cultivates that talent and prepares you for your chosen path – whether you plan to pursue a career as a practicing artist, designer or, after graduate work, as an educator at the secondary or college levels. Choose from three concentrations – graphic design, interior design or studio art – or opt for an interdisciplinary major that combines art with another field of study.
Choose from three concentrations:
The graphic design concentration educates students in the craft and technology of graphic design. They will also learn the vocabulary, visual perception, methods, and processes that are directed toward specialized courses in print design, advertising, computer graphics, illustration, web design, package design and special topic courses. Students will address current design issues and problems.
Interior designers know that our surroundings influence both our productivity and our relaxation. This concentration prepares students for careers in interior design, housing and home planning, kitchen and bath design, home furnishings and more.
Art majors concentrating in studio arts can specialize in painting, ceramics, drawing, photography, mixed media or printmaking. Also offered is a ceramics and sculpture facility that allows students to explore pottery and various sculpture mediums. Seniors have the opportunity to set up their own studio space in the art annex, and there is access to an anagama kiln where students get to practice the ancient process of wood-firing ceramics.
