Bethany provides a wide range of classes and extracurricular activities that allow students to explore and develop their talents.
The Ylvisaker Fine Arts Center serves as the campus art gallery. Its walls are home to an ever-changing collection of artwork; the lobby is frequented by sculpture and other works of art. Each month, a new guest artist displays a portfolio and gives a public lecture on the meaning and relevance of the art.
The last month of each semester is reserved for the student art show, when students have on opportunity to display their work. Each student enrolled in an art class is required to submit at least one work for the show, but many students choose to display several. The works are judged by the art department.
Senior studio art majors are required to hold their own gallery exhibits. This is considered a showcase of academic work and is typically done for academic credit during the senior year.
