Art Department

From the Chair

The Lehman College Art Department's mission is to offer Bronx and surrounding regional students the unique opportunity to study quality academic art and art history programing where both traditional studio and digital art practice share common goals and vision.

¬∑Fundamental traditional and digital art making skills are taught as a vehicle for the development of creative thinking and innovative problem solving. Historical and analytical skills are emphasized, broadening a student’s cultural literacy while helping prepare them for advanced study.

¬∑Through a wide range of degrees and concentrations at both undergraduate and graduate levels, students interested in art education, fine art, and digital media production build a strong foundation to advance their careers while studying in New York City, one of the world’s most important cultural centers.
