Concordia’s Department of Art is a community of visual artists and designers committed to an innovative program, a rigorous work ethic and an attitude of artistic integrity. Together they form the premier Christian visual arts learning community in the Midwest.

Our graduates have become professional graphic designers and studio artists as well as teachers, art directors and web-based digital designers. Several graduates have been accepted to prestigious graduate schools. An important part of a Concordia art education is helping you understand the mindset of a professional artist.

Art Scholarships

At Concordia, providing financial aid assistance is a top priority, and 100% of our full-time undergraduate students receive some sort of financial aid. In addition to merit and need-based aid, the Art Department also provides talent-based scholarships to students who demonstrate a significant ability to create works of art.
