Visual Arts represent a special connection between human being, eyes, and place. It is a phenomenon that involves external visual vision, internal mental and analytical, sentimental visions. It includes majors through which the language of culture is drawn, and the community is developed such as painting, printmaking, and sculpture. We also seek to inaugurate photography major. These majors provide students with capabilities needed to help them explore and develop their skills in art innovation, enrich their cognitive perceptions starting from the art history to modern art. Furthermore, these majors focus on providing students with required skills in terms of the latest equipment and technologies.
Besides the academic study, this Department adopts field training through partnerships with local companies interested in art. We also seek to achieve the academic accreditation and be included in international universities list.
Department graduates have dozens of participations in local and international exhibitions that reflect the skills and capabilities which had been enhanced during years of study. Some of these graduates hold positions in Saudi ministries, innovative researchers who are able to meet market needs in a manner that achieves the Kingdom's Vision 2030 in developing the community and enhancing its aesthetic taste and culture.
