Art, Film & Media Department
The Art of Visual Storytelling
Because God made us in His image, we are designed to create and appreciate beauty as He does. Joining Taylor’s Art Program means not only building artistic skills but also strengthening your understanding of the significance of art and media and the role it can play in the world beyond studio and classroom.
Art is not limited to beautiful pictures; it tells tales, makes statements, and pursues truth through visual storytelling. By choosing an Art major at Taylor, you will be offered several avenues to pursue your passion for beauty and creative storytelling, whether your interest lies in graphic design, art education, photography, or illustration.
