Visual Art Program Mission Statement
The Visual Arts Department will provide a quality visual arts education based on a foundation of both traditional and contemporary practices and ideas. Consistent with the mission, philosophy, and institutional purposes of Casper College, this education serves as the foundation for further study and meaningful participation in contemporary society.
This program is designed for students interested in pursuing a museum or gallery career. The degree is especially appropriate for students interested in working with art, history, or anthropology and allows focus in other areas such as geology or paleontology. The courses provide an understanding of basic operations of a museum or gallery, such as design, education, collections management, marketing, and an overview of the history and changing role of these facilities in society.
