Artists’ Statement
Virginia State University’s Department of Art & Design offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with concentrations in Animation, Graphic Design, and Studio Arts. Students enter into the program through a series of foundation courses in drawing, design, and art history before progressing into more specialized areas of study which include painting, printmaking, ceramics, photography, animation, illustration, and graphic design.

To provide instruction in such a wide variety of media, the Department of Art & Design employs full and part-time faculty consisting of outstanding professional artists from the greater Richmond area. Each brings a mastery of their particular media, often with very disparate personal styles, techniques, and content. Yet underlying all of this diversity is precise craftsmanship, excellent design, and expressive creativity. As students are exposed to these distinct streams of instruction, their artistic training becomes a confluence of knowledge to shape them into the next generation of outstanding artists.
