Welcome!

The purpose of this subject guide is to help students identify and locate helpful resources in their field of study, whether those resources be for academic research or personal inquiry.  Most students recognize that the library has research materials and resources, but many students don’t realize just how much information is available through the library or they don’t know exactly how to go about finding those resources (Wallis 53).  Also, studies have shown that students want more than just lists of potential resources; students want to know how to search for the resources they need (Sinkinson 74).  This guide seeks to provide a little bit of both. You will find a few example resources listed, and then most pages provide instructions and ideas for how to search the libraries resources.  Also, on this home page, you will see a box for frequently asked questions. We know you’re busy, so type in your question here and you may find that someone else has already asked it (Dobbs 175-176). If you don’t’ find the answer to question on this subject guide, feel free to contact the library.  We are here to serve you in your academic and research endeavors!

Art, Studio Emphasis (ARTSV.BA)


The B.A. in Studio Art will provide thorough training in the visual arts within the framework of a Christian world view. Our goals are to foster excellence and to serve God and society through the development and use of creative artistic abilities.

One of the ways that we are created in the image of God is our ability to be creative. The Lee University Art faculty is committed to providing an environment that fosters creativity in students. A variety of media and processes are used to enable students to develop technical artistic skills and the ability to think conceptually and creatively.

In the belief that a culture is defined by its art, students will also become knowledgeable in the history of art in order to profit by what has been done by past artists. By studying the creative efforts of other cultures, students will become more aware of the God-given talents of mankind and how each of us can contribute meaningfully in today’s society.

In addition to studying the history of art, students will engage with contemporary artistic issues that are a part of modern society. By engaging in these concepts, students will become more aware of the importance of a Christian witness in the visual arts and how this might be accomplished.
