Department of Art

The creation and analysis of art are vital forms of learning with the potential to transform culture. At Wheaton, whether you choose studio art, art history, or one of the only undergraduate community arts program in the country, you will develop a vision and artistic practice that integrates Christian faith, creative and intellectual inquiry, and active response to the world. 

As part of the Art Department, you will experience the support of other Christian artists as you relate your work to your faith. You'll join a community of visionary artist-professors and peers, enjoy honing your artistic craft in our beautifully equipped studios, labs, and galleries, and have opportunities to explore the world-class art, artists and architectural offerings of Chicago - including a FREE membership to the unparalleled Art Institute of Chicago.
