Our campus gallery, the Erman B. White Art Gallery, is home to six art exhibits each school year from regionally and nationally recognized artists. Every April, students participate in a juried art exhibition and have the opportunity to showcase their works of art in the gallery. We finish each academic year with a student art sale.
Scholarships are available for full-time students interested in our art program. Scholarships are awarded based on the submission of portfolios during our Fine Arts Audition Day held each spring semester.
