Under the personal direction of qualified artists, students are first introduced to the fundamentals of art and later to higher levels of theory and techniques. Advanced students are guided toward independent study, in the medium of their choice, and are shown how to prepare a resume and professional portfolio. Small classes and personal attention from professionals make Marian University’s art environment a place to learn and grow in the fine arts.
