Art and Design

Browse Majors & Minors

The Art program at Alma College includes a wide range of visual disciplines—from the traditional to the newest media. Our students are encouraged to take advantage of the close student-faculty relationships and excellent facilities in the Clack Art Center to design programs suited to their own interests and goals.

 Coming in October:

Keep an eye out for announcements for the 21st Small Colleges’ Art Exhibition, which will be hosted by Adrian College this year.

This competition is open to all students enrolled in art courses from Adrian, Albion and Alma colleges, and there is no entry fee for submitting work. 

So look at your work this fall, and choose your two pieces “most likely to succeed”. 

 
BFA Applications:

Applications are due on Wednesday, December 3rd, by 10 am.

Juniors who have indicated that they intend to apply to the BFA Program have been added to the Moodle group for ART 500-02, and there will find a syllabus and schedule of lessons for the Fall Term. By attending sessions of that course directly applicable to the application process (photographing work, writing artists’ resumes, setting up on-line portfolios, etc.), you will be well-prepared to submit your application in December.
