Welcome to art at Oregon State University. Our goal is to help stimulate intellectual and aesthetic inquiry, develop our students' creative and technical skills, and graduate engaged, culturally aware citizens. We are an inclusive unit—both majors and non-majors are welcome to learn here.

Our expert, artist-teacher faculty work closely with students in small studio classes. Renowned guest artists are frequently brought in to classes and hosted as featured speakers on campus. The Fairbanks Gallery on the first floor of Fairbanks Hall, hosts regional art exhibitions and the West Gallery regularly features student artwork.

The School of Arts & Communication is home to the JumpstART pre-college program in the studio arts. High school students from around the state and the U.S. attend this well known, one-week summer residency program.
