Welcome to Art + Design

Studying visual arts at Loyola University New Orleans provides you the opportunity of a lifetime. We offer disciplines in art history and visual culture, computer-based imaging, drawing, motion graphics, painting, photography, print design, printmaking, sculpture, and web design.

As a visual arts student, you could:

  • Review the works of the St. Claude’s Collective or other area arts organizations as you build the writing skills pertinent to the arts.
  • Work with Julia Street art dealers and the city museums as you gain critical thinking and the social and business skills required to compete effectively in the contemporary art world.
  • Let the world become your blackboard as you travel to meet working artists in cities like New York, or participate in an arts-based study abroad program.
  • Participate in senior exhibitions of your artwork in one of our two art galleries.
