HLGU has given me many opportunities to grow, not just academically, but spiritually, musically, and artistically.

The art department of HLGU is about creativity and community. As we prepare students for a professional career in art, we also provide an environment for group bonding and personal growth. This close-knit department offers traditional studio arts, as well as applied arts in photography, computer art, and visual communications. With a Christian world view, the art department offers complete instruction to prepare students with the necessary skills, knowledge and attitude to begin a career in art.
