The art department strives to engage students in the power of fine art as a visual language. It provides students with opportunities to experience and explore this visual language and its meaning from a creative and historical perspective.

Within the context of the liberal arts tradition, Hiram’s art program emphasizes inquiry and experimentation, critical evaluation, personal reflection, collaborative dialogue and a consciousness of the larger world. Hiram’s art department encourages motivated students with diverse academic interests to design their own interdisciplinary course of study. With intimate class sizes, art students receive considerable attention, and enjoy close interaction with art faculty and fellow art students.

Scholarships of up to $1,000 are available to incoming students to study art at Hiram College. Please contact Admission for more information at 330.569.5169 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
