Visual Arts

Whether your passion is graphic design, painting, drawing or dimensional design, the University of Mobile offers you a complete multimedia experience. You'll learn from professors who are accomplished artists, designers and educators and will nurture your creativity and allow you to express yourself through your artwork.

Our art courses are designed to challenge your skill and help you push the limits of your own art. Small class sizes facilitate peer review while encouraging experimentation and individual interaction between students and instructors.

For more information, contact Mr. Phillip Counselman, Associate Professor of Art.
