Digital & Visual Art

With small class sizes and engaged faculty, you will receive personal instruction and valuable feedback in sharpening skills and increasing competence in all areas of media.

The Department of Digital and Visual Art at Jewell believes that understanding practical and real-world applications within art-related fields is just as important as gaining artistic skills. We will challenge you to develop fundamental competence and skills in a variety of media while exploring traditional and new technology. You may add a valuable component to your major with an internship or a mentoring collaboration in a variety of art-related fields in nearby Kansas City, and or you may study abroad.

Jewell art graduates have pursued careers in graphic design, web media, illustration, historic preservation, cartooning, video and film making, theater design, gallery work, art history, photography, studio art, teaching and many others.
