Visual Arts

As a student in the UMobile Visual Arts program, you learn from and create with instructors who are also working artists. It’s dynamic, one-on-one mentoring that nurtures your creativity and challenges you to express yourself through a variety of mediums. You may take courses in graphic design, ceramics, painting, drawing and photography as you major or minor in art. You may also choose to concentrate in graphic design.

The flexibility of the UMobile Visual Arts program allows you to focus on the areas that most interest you. During your junior and senior years, you and your professors will design courses that let you delve deeper into the mediums you prefer. Your senior year will conclude with a senior art show displaying your works.
