Join a Dynamic Community of Artists.

As a student, you'll thrive in the exciting, artistic environment of Edinboro University. Our Art Department has the widest array of studio offerings within the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education and is a program of distinction at Edinboro.

Why Edinboro Stands Out.

At Edinboro, we pride ourselves on our 100-year history of instruction in the visual arts and art education. In addition, our Art Department is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art & Design (NASAD), which sets national standards for excellence in the field.

Our expansive curriculum offers you a rich and deeply meaningful education in the arts. Under the mentorship of highly credentialed faculty, you will develop your own aesthetic voice as you work through various drawing mediums.

The initial drawing concentration courses are skill-based and perceptual, focused on building basic knowledge of linear perspective, tonal structure and composition, while later classes focus on content and expression. As you work with still life, the human figure, landscape and contemporary subjects, you will acquire a thorough grounding in traditional foundations as well as current trends in visual art.

You will graduate ready to tackle the challenges of life as a highly trained artist or graduate school student.

There is no portfolio review prior to admission. Just bring your passion for the arts and a desire to work hard in a multidisciplinary, highly supportive environment.
