Why Art & Design?
We in the Abilene Christian University Art and Design Department believe that our program in the visual arts owes its excellence to its faculty, its facilities, and its students. Our versatile faculty is made up of award-winning artists; we are leaders in our various disciplines and media, artists that actively produce and exhibit our creative work. We are proud to announce that our Interior Design program was granted a six-year accreditation by FIDER in 2005.
We value our roles as educators: we love to teach because we love what we teach. Our intent is to teach not only by what we say, but in everything we do. To this end, we strive to be educators who motivate, inspire, and nurture-we seek to be true mentors to our students.
As artists and educators, we believe that art has a unique power to change our world, to make it a more beautiful, generous, rich, and open place. Moreover, we are convinced that the world needs more than artists, it needs Christian artists: artists that in their talent and power of creative expression proclaim the glory of the Creator.
