A diverse and collaborative community.

Valpo’s faculty create a supportive and challenging environment for developing artists — identifying the strengths of their work, while also encouraging constant improvement. This environment helps students take creative risks as they develop their unique artistic perspective.

The tight-knit faculty includes scholars and artists in all of the major disciplines:
  • Art History
  • Ceramics
  • Desktop Publishing
  • Drawing
  • Graphic Design
  • Multimedia and Web Design
  • Museum Studies
  • Painting
  • Photography

Nearly all teaching faculty members are active artists, and they bring their experiences into the classroom to influence a next generation of visual thinkers.
