Why SWOSU is the Place for the Studying Art

SWOSU's faculty and staff are as passionate about art as they are about teaching. Be it traditional or contemporary, our art department houses a cadre of celebrated faculty members with national as well as international recognition. Many of our faculty members have garnered grants and awards from the Oklahoma Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Oklahoma Humanities Council.

Clubs

As a student at SWOSU, you can expand your art knowledge outside the classroom by joining the art department's active Art Club and Graphic Design Club. These clubs regularly take field trips to galleries and museums and have attended the national conference for the College Arts Association and National Design Conference in New York City and Dallas.

Internships

Internships will give you a taste of the real world. SWOSU has an in-department Graphic Design Studio internship and will help you apply for other internships in the community and region.

Exhibits

The SWOSU Art Gallery hosts an ever-changing array of exhibits -- bringing in a variety of artists from all over the region and from around the world. As a student, you too, will have the chance to exhibit your work in SWOSU's Art Gallery, as well as show your artwork at your Senior Exhibition.
