Art and Art History

Art and Art History

St. Olaf’s Department of Art and Art History approaches the study of art as both an intellectual and creative endeavor. The curriculum provides students with the research, interpretive, and technical skills to make and study meaningful works of art and to sustain them as artists and critical thinkers throughout their lives.

Faculty and Staff Introductions

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year. We are so glad you are here.
Things are going to feel sort of strange for a while as we get used to a new way of teaching and learning. That’s true for all of us. Thanks in advance for your flexibility, creativity, and resilience. With a good dose of compassion for each other, I know we can make it through this.
Welcome and Safety Update from Art & Art History Department Chair, Peter Nelson
