Professor Baldwin is a working artist and designer. He teaches art appreciation and has covered a variety of studio art courses, including beginning design, and all levels of drawing, painting, and printmaking. Professor Baldwin also developed and teaches the online version of art appreciation, offered through CSU’s College of Adult and Professional Studies. He serves as the curriculum coordinator for the art program, and works closely with the graphic design program, which he helped to establish.

“Professor Baldwin has been an influential leader on the CSU campus for almost 20 years,” says Dr. Jacqueline Fish, vice president of Academic Affairs. “His students have graduated and moved into successful careers based on the professional instruction and diligent pursuit of excellence demonstrated by Professor Baldwin. CSU is blessed to have committed Christian faculty members who lead by example, and Aaron Baldwin is certainly well deserving of this recognition”.
