Department of Visual Arts

1. General Information

The Department of Visual Arts offers a rich, balanced program of creative work and theoretical studies, combining scholarly work with practical training in a broad range of artistic media. A Visual Art education at ESOGÜ is a comprehensive experience of conceptual challenge, skill-building and self-discovery. Our students acquire the intellectual and practical tools to make art, as well as to interpret and critique the world of images.
 
Throughout the program, courses in art history, theory and criticism are offered alongside intensive studio courses in drawing, print media, photography, digital media, painting and sculpture. In the studio and classroom, both traditional and contemporary concerns and processes are addressed, including new digital applications in the visual arts and issues such as contemporary critical theory applied to art-making and interpretation. Guest lectures and workshops by visiting artists, historians, curators and critics enhance the program.
 
Visual Arts students will have many opportunities to exhibit their work in galleries on campus. Visual Arts students are expected to frequently present their own solo or group exhibitions. Our graduates are expected to have their own studios and work as freelance artists or to work as painters, sculptors, art consultants in private businesses or public offices. They can also be instructors for elective art classes at the university level.
