Throughout the program, Visual Arts students get lots of opportunity to show their work publicly, culminating in a final gallery show at the end of their second year.

The Visual Arts program is the gathering of creative problem solvers, and creative analytical thinking is its language. We give students the fundamental studio and academic skills they need to 'make' art. On our blog, we showcase projects and other events.
