The Art Area is one of three academic areas in the Division of Fine Arts—Art, Music, and Speech and Theatre. Three full-time faculty teach courses of study that lead to the degree Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art.

Art courses at Kentucky State University are designed to serve both those students who are interested in art as a profession and those who are primarily interested in obtaining knowledge of various art forms or opportunities for creative expression. Course offerings include those in ceramics, drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, digital photography, film, digital imaging, design, art history, and art education.

Enrollment in studio art courses is generally limited to 10–15 students. The instructor provides personal guidance and attention to each student. Studio spaces may be available for students to have individual working areas. Studio and academic opportunities are enriched for Art majors by field trips to galleries and museums, and by a series of guest lecturers to the University.
