The School of Art explores ideas, provides the highest standards of craft, and stimulates individual and collective creativity, teaching, and research through its programs, curriculum, and exhibitions.  

The School of Art at Kent State University is one of the most comprehensive university art departments in the State of Ohio, offering undergraduate and graduate programs in art education, art history, crafts and fine arts.

The primary mission of the School of Art is to provide a comprehensive and superior professional education in the study and practice of the visual arts that will complement university studies in the liberal arts, humanities, and sciences.

The School of Art is committed to excellence in curricula and instruction; to liberal education as a necessary ground and complement to the development of perception, intellect, and imagination in the visual arts; to knowledge of art history as a basis for aesthetic sensibility and personal expression; to development of skills in traditional and experimental media; and to the practice and communication of the unity of form, meaning, and value in art and craft.

The school is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.
