Department of Visual Art

Visual Art at Brown University

The Brown Visual Art (VA) Department has an outstanding reputation for both the breadth and depth of our art instruction. Our faculty artists are nationally and internationally recognized, yet also intensely engaged in teaching. We continually produce successful artists. We also hear from Visual Art alumni about the myriad ways in which lessons from our courses translate into a vast array of other creative enterprises. Our alumni fondly remember the many studio hours they spent in the List Art Center and note their development of critical thinking skills, technical proficiencies, and appreciation for both contemporary and historical art.
