The Juanita and Ralph Harvey School of Visual Arts at Midwestern State University offers a variety of studio programs in well-equipped facilities. Each discipline involves in-depth teaching of the practical skills, studio techniques, and visual concepts necessary for the creation of fine art. The gallery features group and solo exhibitions by regionally and nationally known artists during the academic year, as well as the Annual Student Exhibition in the spring and summer. During the fall and spring semesters, the Harvey School of Visual Arts hosts a number of workshops and lectures through its Visiting Artist Program. Field trips to Dallas and Fort Worth museums, galleries, and private artists’ studios complete a well-rounded educational experience.

MSU is also one of only twelve other schools in the state of Texas to have received accreditation with the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).
The Juanita and Ralph Harvey School of Visual Arts is dedicated to ensuring that the students acquire the necessary foundation knowledge and skills, develop marketable competencies in an area of artistic specialization, and come to see themselves as productive members of the global society and as responsible professionals committed to excellence.
The Juanita and Ralph Harvey School of Visual Arts offers three degree options: The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree is for the student who wants to major in art and minor in another field. The Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degree is a more in-depth plan for those focused on graduate study and continuing career development as a professional. Teacher certification for grades K-12 can also be added to the B.F.A. degree.
