The fine arts department at Ohio Wesleyan, created in 1864, was one of America’s first college art departments. The department offers general experience through a broad B.A. program and/or professional preparation with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Majors in fine arts may concentrate in studio art, art history, or fine arts education. Non-art majors may satisfy the Group IV distribution requirement by taking ART 110 , ART 111 , ART 112 , ART 113 , ART 351, ART 352, ART492, or any other course for which the student qualifies or to which the student can gain admission by permission of the instructor, excluding art education courses (ART 301 , ART 302 , ART 307 ).

Qualified students seeking either the B.F.A. or the B.A. degree in fine arts are encouraged to participate in one or more of the University honors programs. Students should refer to the Honors chapter of this Catalog and consult with their academic advisors as to how best to include these opportunities in their programs.

The department faculty recommends that students in the department consider participation in the GLCA Arts Program in New York (see Off-Campus Study Programs ).

Foundation Courses

These introductory-level courses are intended to meet the needs of the major and non-major alike and serve as prerequisites for upper-level art history and studio courses. Any of these courses also fulfills the GROUP IV DISTRIBUTION REQUIREMENT for the non-major.

Studio Courses

In every studio course, students will be required to purchase personal supplies, materials and/or small hand tools. The costs associated with participation in studio courses vary from course to course. In some courses a $75 studio fee, covering group supplies and materials, will be charged to the student’s bill.

Key codes to entry doors and studio spaces will be issued as needed to students. There is no charge for the keyless entry doors.

Studio Art Courses at levels I-IV are listed in the Schedule of Classes.
