Visual Arts

Art is everywhere you look. It is your creative expression of the human experience. It is whatever your mind can imagine. Our department is here to teach you the skills to produce creations that can be appreciated for their intellect, visual impact, and emotional power.

We offer a unique, spiritually led experience in the visual arts. We seek to engage you in the process of perception and practice. We aim to help you develop your distinct visual language.

Whether you want to become a studio artist, graphic designer, animator, curator, or an art teacher, we provide a diverse program that encourages you to explore the field that interests you. In addition to being led by a faculty of experienced practicing artists, you will have access to the museums, galleries, design firms, studios, and more that make up Nashville’s vibrant art scene. And we don’t stop there! You can be part of shows, exhibitions, and trips that cross the country and globe.
