What makes Tarleton's art program so special?
It's not one thing but a combination of many different things that distinguishes Tarleton's art program from other programs:  small class sizes, a beautiful facility with excellent technological resources, multiple exhibition opportunities, field trips to galleries and museums in Fort Worth, and a faculty of distinguished artists who are dedicated to giving each student the individual attention they need to develop as a professional artist.  At Tarleton, there is a strong sense of community that is enhanced by the Tarleton Art Society, a student organization that builds connections and professional involvements.
