Art and Art History

The Art and Art History Department provides Westphal students majoring in design and media with freshman foundation courses in design and art, as well as a more advanced fine art and art history education in the upper division. We also provide a fine art minor and an art history minor that are open to all Drexel students.

The vision of the Art and Art History Department is to develop a sophisticated awareness of art through the rigors of traditional and contemporary studio practice and the study of art history. Students will acquire the visual acumen to make and to evaluate art as well as understand and articulate its importance in past and present cultures. A large number of courses are offered in painting, drawing, print-making, sculpture, & multi-media as well as art history focusing on classical and modern art of the West, China, Japan and India.
