Students in Concordia University-Portland's visual arts program may participate in hands-on art courses in addition to courses in Art in the Christian Church, and Art and Culture. Art studios, including drawing, painting, ceramics, calligraphy, and stained glass provide students with practical ways to express themselves. Students are challenged to develop creative solutions in each of the media, and many advance in skills with personal projects. Some students, for example, have created a sequence of works on the potter's wheel in ceramics, while others have developed unique and challenging stained glass designs to construct a beautiful finished window. Students majoring in Education with a Secondary Art Endorsement will take 30+ course credits in art to fulfill their degree requirements.
Imaginative and beautiful examples of student work are exhibited throughout the year in art display cabinets in Luther Hall.
