Department of Art and Design
The art department at Dominican offers an exceptional education in the visual arts within the context of a liberal arts education. Whether you plan to major in art or want to broaden your understanding of the creative process, we’ll give you the skills you need to succeed.
Whichever program you choose, you’ll work closely with talented faculty who are passionate about art. You’ll find plenty of inspiration, too, through monthly exhibitions in our own O’Connor Art Gallery, lectures by visiting artists, and field trips to Chicago galleries and museums.
You’ll also enjoy access to excellent facilities, including:
- Recently renovated digital photo labs and traditional darkrooms
- Spacious painting and drawing studios
- A well-equipped graphic design studio with large-screen iMacs and a tabloid color laser printer
- A recently built woodshop for sculpture and ceramics
- Printmaking studios filled with natural light
