Explore the art minor at UW-Eau Claire

The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's art minor will introduce you to all things art — from the creative process to visual thinking. Rooted in experiential learning, you'll explore topics in theory, ethics and practices of traditional and contemporary art. Areas of study are up to you and include drawing, printmaking, sculpture, graphic design, computer modeling, ceramics, photography and painting.

We also offer outside-the-classroom opportunities to hone your skills and develop your artistic expression. Experience field studies, internships and workshops. The department also regularly features visiting artists, allowing you to learn new techniques and best practices. 

An art minor adds value to any major but is most often paired with journalism, English, history and cultural studies.

Or explore the world of graphic communications with courses in typography and digital design.

Travel opportunities. The Department of Art and Design offers a variety of travel opportunities to help diversify and expand your studies, including study abroad, National Student Exchange and cultural immersion programs. Three annual field trips to regional and national destinations — traditionally Minneapolis, Chicago and New York City — offer a unique perspective on contemporary art and design.
