Cottey’s art program provides a unique opportunity for students to develop skills in problem-solving and understanding of the visual arts as a vital part of their liberal arts education through a range of art lectures and studio art courses. For those students who plan to pursue further studies in art, there are career opportunities such as advertising, art scholarship, art education, art history, illustration, interior design, crafts, museology, gallery direction, graphic design, architecture, photography, and studio art.
The Fine Arts Department offers well-equipped classrooms and studio areas for ceramics, painting, graphic design, drawing, sculpture, and photography housed in the newly-constructed Judy and Glenn Rogers Fine Arts Building. The Haidee and Allen Wild Center for the Arts includes an art gallery which is used for exhibition artwork of students and faculty and of regional and national artists. The Rubie Burton Academic Center holds a Student Gallery in the Western corridor which exhibits work from students year-round.
