Let Marywood’s Art Department help you discover “where creativity works.”

The Art Department at Marywood University combines art training with a liberal arts education to help students develop their creative voice and vision for a career in art or further graduate study. Students who graduate from our programs go on to work as studio artists, designers, educators, and therapists in museums, galleries, public schools, universities, private practice, and other public and private organizations. Our alumni have secured positions as art teachers, museum directors, art therapists, studio artists, art directors, graphic and web designers, children’s book illustrators, courtroom sketchers, painting instructors, photojournalists, fashion photographers, metal fabricators, jewelers, and furniture designers, to name a few.
