Department of Art

See the world in a new way

It’s not just what you see, it’s how you see it. Open your eyes. Create a new view of the world. You’ll develop a heightened sense of what you see, how you see and how you communicate visually. Work in visual art is both creative and critical. It’s about seeing, thinking, feeling and doing. And about knowing, understanding and communicating.

Bridgewater will supply you with the tools and the training, leaving the creative execution up to you. Visual communication is a multi-layered puzzle, and our instructors will show you how to solve problems effectively and clearly, paving the way for your vision.

Art Practitioner in Residence, Ron Alabanza

One of the things that is majorly lacking in today’s world is creativity. We are afraid to attempt something we have never tried before. The art major is the breaking of that boundary.

Christopher Michael, Art Major ’14
