Creating art is an undertaking made up of more than brush strokes, sketched lines, and other learned techniques.
Perhaps the most difficult step lies in finding the inspiration to create in a way that is true to who you are. Where did the greatest artists find inspiration for their truly distinctive masterpieces? How do you access this same source of creativity?
Self-discovery through art
MUM teaches the creative process in a new way. As a student, you’ll get in touch with your deepest self, the source of all creative inspiration, through daily practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique.
This research-based technique lowers stress, heightens clear thinking, and enhances creativity, allowing you to learn and create without stress in a way that is uniquely your own.
Dive deeply into your work
Our BFA program provides a more rigorous schedule of courses than our BA, making it perfect for students who want to hone their skills for graduate school or a high-level art career.
You’ll study only one full-time course per month, diving deeply into creating art enriched by critiques, readings, and class discussions.
As a BFA student, you’ll have a spacious, semi-private studio where you’ll focus for four months (or more) on developing your art practice while creating a unique body of work in painting, sculpture, or ceramics.
Learn from expert artists
Our low student-faculty ratio means you’ll get the individual attention you need to find your artistic voice. Our expert faculty will provide constructive feedback, connect you with successful guest artists for guidance and internships, and help you prepare graduate school applications.
You’ll graduate grounded in your own artistic style and ready to take the next step in your creative journey, be it further education or an art career.
