Intermedia class

B.A. in Art

Graphic Design

WVWC Graphic Design students learn to design our visual culture, including a range of communication media: books, websites, magazines, posters, traffic signs, logos, etc. All are products of graphic design. People turn to graphic designers to make these products effectively communicate their ideas.

Drawing and Painting

Drawing and Painting focuses on both traditional and contemporary practices. We will explore a wide range of media, while supporting the development of the student's artistic voice. As students progress through the program, we will work to develop that vision through specific bodies of work.


Intermedia is all about art that straddles boundaries and technologies. Intermedia includes video art, installation art, and performance art in addition to a many other constantly changing approaches. Intermedia students take their work into the fourth dimension, using time to convey their ideas.
