Create, innovate, communicate
As a visual artist, you create, innovate, and communicate. You share beauty, you share experiences, you share thoughts and feelings that help people to connect. In the College of Arts and Architecture, we’ll help you hone your skills, nurture your creativity, and prepare you for the next step.
View your education as an opportunity to explore...get weird and fail a few times – it’s a great way to learn.
