The art alumni of Randolph College find themselves with a variety of professional options after graduation, including careers in media, advertising, publishing, fashion, design, education, or the performing arts, and are prepared to work as professional artists or in museums and galleries.
Your professors are experienced professionals who will act as your mentors and guides. In addition, the Art and Art History Department’s Visiting Artist Program means you’ll have exposure to noted artists, critics, and art historians.
Imagine the inspiration of working in a studio with high ceilings and a glass wall providing a spectacular mountain view. Or the connection with nature you get working in a painting studio that includes decks, terraces, and porches overlooking the Mabel K. Whiteside Greek Theatre (an outside natural theatre designed after the original Greek theatres). Whether you’re painting, printmaking, or drawing, you’ll find that Randolph offers you outstanding facilities in which to create. As a senior, you will have your own dedicated studio space which is available to you 24/7.
The Maier Museum of Art at Randolph College is an outstanding resource for art students and majors. Built in 1952 by the National Gallery of Art as a repository for its collection in the event of war, it was renovated in 1977 and now displays the College’s remarkable collection of American art.
