Student Clubs and Organizations
Visivo, Student Magazine
The Shippensburg University art department
has their own magazine, Visivo, Italian for visual. Students work on all
aspects of this magazine from the theme to the design, photography and
printing. Creating Visivo is a unique and important "real life"
experience in the development of student graphic designers.
Students involved in this club write,
photograph, design and edit a four-color magazine that is printed and
distributed throughout the university each year. Students learn a tremendous
amount about all aspects of magazine production.
Past Visivo articles include profiles of
various senior art majors who have shown outstanding achievement in a specific
visual arts field. The publication is designed and produced entirely by a team
of student designers.

Student Art League
travel to art exhibitions in the surrounding communities, schedule guest
artists for workshops, and organize and stage an annual Holiday Art Sale (November - December). Ceramic and other interested students travel to the national conference of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA). Through NCECA students attend ceramic presentations, visit ceramic exhibitions, meet ceramic artists, and become familiar with graduate ceramic programs. Advised by Professor Culbertson.
National Art Education Association
The SU student chapter of the Pennsylvania Art Educators Association (PAEA) was established in 2005. Art Education majors become members in PAEA, the state chapter of the National Art Education Association (NAEA), to network, and to find important discipline resources. Annually students attend and present papers/projects at meetings and conferences sponsored by PAEA and NAEA. Advised by Dr. Moilanen.
