Experience art

“At so many schools, art is framed in the academy and solidified in the critique. At Elon, there is a holistic approach that combines technical advancement with critical ideas that produces a student who is not only a craftsperson, but an intellectual artist as well.”

Discover art history

"It takes a very dedicated person to choose to study art history at Elon and students leave with not only a strong understanding of the history of art, but also know how to synthesize what we've learned into something a lot more complex than in other programs that involve at lot of slide memorization.”
