Visual Art

“In all object making that aspect which relates to its conceptual interpretation is ART.  

That which relates the object to an intended purpose is DESIGN. 

And the quality of its execution is CRAFT. …Hella Basu  


We live in an increasingly visual culture. The Visual Arts division of UVa-Wise seeks to teach our students how to more effectively utilize this visual language. This knowledge is needed both by those that wish to work in the visual arts as a profession, as well as those who simply wish to be more aware of how visual communication functions and become more literate in the visual language that surrounds us.
