January 6, 2014 faculty development week.

Classes begin January 13, 2014.

DEPARTMENT
VAPA, Department of Art

The Department of Art is part of the School of Visual and Performing Arts, including also Music, Theatre and Dance, which is part of the College of Arts and Sciences. The Department offers a BFA in studio and art education. It currently has six faculty and 70 plus majors. The Department has well equipped studios for drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, photography and graphic design.

The University of Louisiana at Monroe, a state-supported institution with over 8,000 students, is situated on a 208-acre campus along the banks of Bayou DeSiard.
