William Arscott is the senior member of the art faculty. He has worked in many artistic fields, including ceramics, painting, print making, sculpture and cinematography. For many years, while teaching cinematography, he also taught huge sections of art appreciation, and his lectures for these have been aptly described as “legendary.” In 1980 Professor Arscott established the cinematography program. His primary artist activity is that of a movie producer, though he also does some work in painting and printmaking. Distinguished both as an artist and educator, Arscott has been recognized and awarded many honors, including Texas Senate Resolution No. 514, Outstanding Educator of America, Alumni Distinguished Professor and Regents Professor.
