Make your life a work of art

Few things are as satisfying as creating something with your hands and conscious mind. The Department of Art at Our Lady of the Lake University offers two program tracks: Bachelor of Art – Fine Art and Bachelor of Art – Applied New Media Arts


Both tracks will expose students to the historical sweep of art making, plus provide them with contemporary technical skills in line with the possibilities of the 21st century. A wide range of courses are available, including ceramics, drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, narrative/sequential, sculpture, digital and various new media offerings.

The fine arts oriented degree in art will prepare students for visual art-related employment opportunities, self-employment as a visual artist, and/or graduate studies. The applied arts track will help prepare students for exciting possibilities in the many areas of graphic design. The OLLU Art Student League and art department have developed a positive working relationship with some of San Antonio's most active arts organizations. These ties provide students with opportunities to exhibit art both on and off campus as well as the hands on experience of providing visual arts related services within the larger social milieu The addition of a Mac G5 equipped fine art studio within the art department has meant that we now offer many exciting courses in new media and the digital arts (with many more to follow).
