The ECA Visual Arts Department offers students the opportunity to work with professional artists in a studio setting. Twenty-eight foundation and special topics courses are offered each year in a variety of media, including sculpture, printmaking, video, darkroom photography, digital photography, painting and drawing.

The art department constantly cultivates the exchange of creative ideas with critiques, lectures, gallery and museum trips and visiting guest artists. Art students expand their visual communication vocabulary, critical thinking and problem solving skills, independent initiative, and craftsmanship and technical abilities, while making personally expressive artwork.
