Sculpture, painting, ceramics, photography, dancing, acting, theatre set design, lighting, poetry, stories, film aesthetics, video editing, computer arts - many of both traditional and newer art forms are explored, tried and appreciated at Kent State University at Trumbull.
Walk through the Art Gallery to see samples of the local talent developing through our art classes. Whether you wish to work on the development of an artistic talent or an appreciation for the talents of others, contact Phillip Buntin for more information.
Reading and writing can be so much more than fundamental skills: poetry (sonnets to lyrics), playwriting (staged plays to screened plays), and stories (short stories to novels) are all encouraged here at Kent State Trumbull through both Theatre and English courses offered, as well as through publication in Icon and exploration with the Film Club.
The theatre department hosts four productions during the university season (fall and spring) and another three shows in the Summer Stock program. The department partners with the community and local school districts throughout the production season, using actors, designers, and technicians from around the area. Productions run the gamut, including classics, American standards, youth productions and musicals, to the avant-garde and original scripts. The theatre department also provides an array of classes for its students, and youth acting classes each summer.
The Kent State Trumbull English faculty support several literary artistic endeavors. From evaluating and judging for the local Book Nook Contest, to picking the best submissions for the nationally acclaimed Hart Crane Poetry Contest, to working with students to edit and put together ICON: The Literary and Art Magazine. Courses in creative writing, literature appreciation (from Modern American to Gilgamesh) are offered frequently. For more information on any of these literary endeavors, please see our English Department page.
