Art majors have many special opportunities outside of the classroom to participate as individuals or as a group, both on and off campus. Students are encouraged to be involved in exhibitions, travel, internships, etc. Financial assistance is often available to assist with some expenses.
Students have the opportunity to receive university credit for a variety of career work experiences. Students learn through doing: work with museums, galleries, professional artists, graphic designers and community art organizations.
Located on the Washburn University campus, the Mulvane Art Museum is a resource for students, faculty and classes to view ever changing exhibits or look at work in the collection. Art Education majors may participate in the children's art programming through the museum.
In keeping with Washburn University policy, over-60 auditors may enroll in art classes as space permits. However, to off-set firing costs and equipment usage, course fees are assessed for Ceramics courses ($200 per semester) and Kiln-formed Glass classes ($100 per semester.)
