Creating art is the process of making the invisible visible, of developing and delivering a point of view.

It’s more than putting paint on a canvas or forming clay.

Creating art is related to self-discovery while understanding and locating the depth of your own creative process.

Immerse yourself in art

In our block system you’ll study one full-time course per month, giving you the time you need to dive deeply into each subject. You’ll be immersed in each studio class without the stress of juggling multiple courses and assignments.


Faculty and peer support

MUM’s experienced faculty have a track record for supporting your development as an artist. Personalized guidance and feedback from faculty artists and peers creates an atmosphere that supports your experience and understanding of the practice of art.


The secret to self discovery

As a student in MUM’s BA program, you’ll practice the Transcendental Meditation technique daily. This evidence-based technique reduces stress, enhances clear thinking, and gets you in touch with your inner self—the deepest, most authentic part of yourself—to help you create your best work.

Financial aid is available for this program. Learn more ➤
