Welcome from the Chair

Chris Kahler - Interim Department Chair 

Interim Department Chair - Chris Kahler

 

EIU’s dedication to the arts is unmatched.  Our remarkable Doudna Fine Arts Center is a state-of-the-art facility, providing dedicated, creative space for aspiring artists to receive a top-rated visual arts education.  Coupled with our passionate and knowledgeable faculty members, our students are guaranteed a rigorous, contemporary education in the arts that will provide them with a lifetime of enrichment and inspiration.  I could not be more excited to serve the students and faculty of this department and I hope that you will not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or need assistance.  I can be reached at 217-581-3410 or emailed at: cbkahler@eiu.edu

The Department of Art’s primary mission is to meet the instructional needs of our students by placing an emphasis on developing within each student a sense of visual awareness, self-discipline, an analytical approach toward the creative process, an awareness of historical issues, and a commitment to craftsmanship. Carefully structured degree programs provide each student with the maximum opportunity for personal development and professional growth.

The Department of Art offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in art and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in art. The BFA degree options are art education, graphic design, and studio (two-dimensional emphasis and three-dimensional emphasis). The BA degree options are art history and studio (two-dimensional emphasis and three-dimensional emphasis). For more information about each option use the left side column menu under "Programs" and click on the degree program you are interested in.

 

Sincerely - Chris Kahler
