Creating art is the process of bringing the unmanifest into the real world, of bringing to life your own unique perspective.

It’s more than just brushing paint onto a canvas or molding a lump of clay.

To create great art, it’s crucial to understand the depth of your own creative process. What is the unique way in which only you create?

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 pure consciousness—the deepest, most authentic part of yourself—to help you create your best work yet.

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.

Consciousness-Based community

MUM’s experienced faculty will constructively support your artistic growth and with personalized guidance and feedback. Our tight-knit, uplifting community of students will join you on your quest for a deeper creative truth.

You’ll graduate familiar with the unique talents and creativity that only you can bring to the world, ready to pursue the career of your choice in art.
