About Art at Clemson

Art at Clemson

Art and artists thrive on the campus of Clemson University. Clemson is a comprehensive university with the resources and facilities to offer students excellent educational opportunities in the visual arts.

About the Department

We have approximately 100 undergraduates and 18 graduate students enrolled in our visual arts programs. Uniquely, our size allows us to frequently conduct team faculty critiques, which maximizes the exchange of ideas and methods that arise within individual studio disciplines — painting, sculpture, drawing, ceramics, printmaking and photography. Our students work and learn in well-equipped studio facilities, and we have an ideal average student-to-teacher ratio of 1-to-12 or better.

The Department of Art is housed in Lee Hall, which also serves as home for the Department of Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Planning, and Construction Science & Management. Collaborative projects between college faculties take place regularly. Lee Hall also includes a spacious art gallery, art and architecture library, Mac labs and materials lab.

Programs and Accreditation

Our Department of Art is part of The Center for Visual Arts in the College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities. We offer the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) and the Master of Fine Arts (MFA) professional degrees and our curricula are accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.
