Art

Students of WLC’s art program participate in the creative experience that develops their individual God-given skills of visual expression by working alongside gifted faculty, developing relationships with guest artists and visiting professionals, and experiencing distinctive museum trips and gallery tours. Art courses are designed to promote aesthetic literacy, visual thinking, creative expression and critical analysis. Students in the art program have traveled to destinations such as Italy, Costa Rica, Norway, Iceland, and the U.S. to create on location and gain new experiences that enrich their work. The program continues to prepare competent visual communicators for life and work in professional art fields and graduate school.

Music

WLC music students develop their talents, discover the science and artistry of making music, and learn to embrace music as a precious gift from God. Students can perform in vocal and instrumental ensembles, compose in a state-of-the-art music lab, visit with some of the world’s best touring musicians in master classes, travel and perform throughout the United States and Europe during annual concert tours, take private lessons from members of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, and see internationally acclaimed musicians perform in the acoustically superb Schwan Concert Hall. Your support for the music program will help ensure that future generations of choral and instrumental students will enjoy the opportunity to bring their musical talents and passions – as well as their love of performance – to our campus and community.

Theatre

Students of Wisconsin Lutheran College’s theatre program are involved in all aspects of theatre – acting, directing, technical theatre and stage management. They work as a team to build a production from script to stage under the guidance of experienced faculty, and are able to become connected to Milwaukee’s thriving theatre community in the process. Theatre helps both the participant and the viewer better understand how and why other people think, feel, and behave as they do. Through the study of theatre, students also explore and learn numerous practical skills that are valued by employers and integral to numerous careers. Not only does the WLC theatre program strive to help students grow in their knowledge and craft of theatre, it also seeks to help them mature into men and women who will be assets in their home, workplace, church, community and nation. By supporting theatre at WLC, you are contributing to a domino effect that will benefit others, including yourself.
