Occidental College

The Department of Art History and the Visual Arts seeks to assist students in developing their own creative ability and understanding of film and the visual arts. Two basic approaches are employed, art (and film) history and studio instruction/film and video production. A broad range of courses covers the history of Asian and Western art and film, and studio classes in drawing, design, painting, sculpture, printmaking, papermaking, filmmaking and digital media. Courses in advanced design and photography are available through an exchange program with the Art Center College of Design. The flexible curriculum provides preparation for advanced training leading to careers in creative art, art history, film and criticism, work in museums, colleges, universities, art libraries and slide collections, art education in both primary and secondary schools, and graphic design.
