Bachelor of Arts in Art (Studio and Art History)

Artists are creative by nature. As a Lourdes student pursuing your bachelor’s degree in art, you will thrive in an environment that encourages you to be visually expressive and to explore the juxtapositions of light and shade, and thought and action within the context of a liberal arts education.

Lourdes University art students hone their craft in a variety of mediums. A wealth of artistic opportunities exist outside the classroom to enhance your college experience. Work with visiting artists; network in the local arts communities; assist non-profit organizations; study in Florence, Italy; submit artwork for the Tau Literary & Visual Journal; become a member of the Orbis Ars and Pre-Art Therapy student organizations; and host your own student art exhibit.

Upon graduation, Lourdes alumni choose to pursue a variety of careers including art educator, illustrator, art historian, interior decorator, visual artists, or museum guide to name a few. A Bachelor of Arts degree in Art also opens the door to successful careers in communications and media.

Lindsay Scypta Awarded Accelerator Grant

This program offers financial support with quick turn-around for local individual artists or artist collectives advancing creative projects and thereby advancing their careers.

Lindsay Scypta is an adjunct instructor at Lourdes University and holds a BFA in Art & Design from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University and a MFA from The Ohio State University. She was an Artist-in-Resident at Clay Art Center in Port Chester, New York.

Lindsay continues balance teaching and making. She had a solo show at Morean Center for Clay in 2015 and was a recipient of the Toledo Museum of Art’s Palmer Scholarship, providing support to conduct visual research in Paris, France. Her work was published by Gingko Press in the New Age of Ceramics, Lark Books 500 Vases and she was awarded Emerging Artist by Ceramics Monthly in 2017. Her influences include the stone tracery of Gothic cathedrals, Victorian fretwork and the history of the dining experience. Working strictly with porcelain clay, the work is thrown, trimmed, altered and decorated, then fired to cone six in an electric oxidation atmosphere. Much of Lindsay’s MFA research was centered around not only the history of the table but also the development of laser cut tools, stamps, and molds that she continues to challenge and apply to her work. All her work is microwave and dishwasher safe.
