Welcome to the UTPB Visual Arts website, We hope you will visit the different links below to learn more about us. In 2007, UTPB Visual Arts Department was the sixth department in the state of Texas to be awarded accreditation with NASAD (National Association of Schools of Art and Design). We have an excellent though small art department offering a Bachelor of Arts Degree and a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. Within these degrees we have a variety of programs offering courses in drawing, painting, sculpture, art history, ceramics, printmaking, graphic design, and new media.
We are very proud of our students, many of whom have been accepted into national and regional competitions before they graduate. Upon graduating, many students have become teachers in public education while others have found employment at advertising agencies or gone on to graduate school.
If you are looking for a small school where you are not just a number, where professors teach your classes and you have plenty of studio time we may be the department for you. If you have any questions please contact us through e-mail, phone or letter.
