With Capital's location in the capital city of Columbus, you'll have access to a vibrant arts community and all the opportunity to create, exhibit and experience art a major city affords.
At Capital, you'll learn in a setting tailored to the individual. You'll be guided and taught by professors who also are practicing artists. When it comes to teaching, they have a single purpose — to develop proficient and creative students in the fine arts within the scope of a liberal arts education.
Advanced standing in art is possible through portfolio examination of work completed independently at another institution or high school. You'll be encouraged to participate in local competitions, and Capital's Schumacher Gallery showcases student art in an annual exhibition each spring. In addition to its extensive collection of original paintings, ethnic art and sculpture, the gallery hosts traveling exhibits and a variety of creative programs. Students are encouraged to attend gallery receptions where they can meet informally with artists and others who share an interest in art.
