Department of Art

The Henderson State University Department of Art provides the best visual arts education in a nurturing environment. Our excellent faculty, small classes and great facilities give our students a unique opportunity to become strong artists, graphic and media designers and art educators. It is considered to be one of the best programs in Arkansas. 

Henderson State’s faculty are professional artists, designers and scholars who pursue active professional careers as well as their work in the classroom. This dual role insures a faculty with the skills and knowledge to prepare students for the challenges they face in establishing professional art careers for themselves. Our department prides itself on providing the expertise students require as they pursue careers in the studio arts, graphic and media design, or education.

The department offers an impressively diverse and well-taught art curriculum and is recognized accordingly throughout the region. It is large enough to be comprehensive and small enough to be genuinely nurturing with its students.
