Art Department

From the Chair

The mission of the Lehman College Art Department is to offer students from the Bronx and surrounding regions a unique opportunity to study art and art history in a program where both traditional studio and digital art practice share common goals and vision.

¬∑Fundamental skills of traditional and digital art making 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.
