The CMU Art Department is a constantly evolving community of artists, populated by our students, faculty, and alumni.

Our full-time faculty are professional practicing artists who have a desire to share their passion for creating art. Lecturers and visiting artists allow students to learn from community professionals working in their fields of interest. Students explore a variety of media while gaining practical experience on their way to establishing a career. Alumni in the midst of their professional lives utilize their education as artists, art educators in the K-12 classroom, graphic designers and more.
