Buena Vista University


Is expression your passion? Do you admire how skillfully creativity can be used to seek truth, depict beauty, conjure fiction, and uncover ugliness? Or are you driven by your own desire to create, to make the next work so unique that we don’t yet have words to describe it?

Studying art formally can help focus and improve skills in your own creative pursuits and show you how to root them in an informed appreciation of the art of others. Whether you are wielding a paintbrush, molding clay, or pointing a camera, an art education will not only help you polish your own talent, but how you to utilize your passion in your career.
