Welcome to the VCSU Art Department


Valley City State University is fast becoming the school of choice for ambitious art students throughout the region. The Department of Art provides students with the technical skill and cultural awareness essential to the careers of professional artists, scholars, teachers or administrators. Our students expect to be challenged, to try new materials, strategies and ideas. VCSU Art students have access to excellent facilities and close mentoring from faculty. Coursework includes practice, discussion and critiques with faculty, advisors and visiting artists. Cross discipline investigations are strongly encouraged. Exhibition and installation spaces are readily available throughout the beautiful community of Valley City. Fargo and Moorhead, with their rich history in the visual arts, are just a short drive away.

The VCSU Art Gallery is a teaching space available for student presentations, visiting artist exhibitions and local shows. Seminars on specialized topics, and a strong visiting artist schedule can be seen in the gallery.

The VCSU art faculty instructs all levels of drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, design, and art education.
