Art Minors

Learn to think like an artist. With Texas Wesleyan's art minor programs, you'll learn the history, techniques and theory behind art — and how to create it. The benefits of an art minor go beyond the studio — you'll also gain critical thinking skills to find creative solutions to use in your degree, career and community. 

It's more than just paintings on the wall — it's cinematography, performance art, architecture and more. Dive deeper into the history and culture of art with the Visual Arts minor, or learn how to create arts in different mediums to tell a story with the Studio Arts minor.


The visual arts minor teaches you the meaning behind the art. You'll learn how to understand the role that art plays in history and culture, and how art shapes our society today. The minor is 18 hours of coursework that includes traditional art and architectural history, photography, film and cartography.
