Eco-Art Major

An Eco-Art Major at Grace College is an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the visual arts and our natural ecosystems. As you consider art schools in Indiana, near you in the midwest, be assured that when you find your way to Winona Lake, Indiana, you will discover a top college for art with a biblical worldview. A Grace College Eco-Art Degree examines visual art theory and practice, environmental studies and ethics, and government and social constructs. It provides the framework for students to explore environmental issues on a local, regional, and global scale, preparing you to weigh questions and create conversation in a Christian college context.

The Eco-Art program is for you if you are serious about our global environment and care about a cross-discipline approach to how we can better co-exist within our natural environment and proactively participate in stewardship, protection, justice, and sustainability. With a bachelor’s degree in Eco-Art, you will be required to get real-world experience through internships or field research focusing on your combined passion in the visual arts and environmental studies.

Future environmental artist, the way forward is Grace.
