Creating art takes the artist beyond the boundaries of materials, image, form and meaning
Perhaps the most difficult step lies in finding the inspiration to create in a way that is true to who you are. How do you access this same source of creativity?
Self-discovery through art
As a student at MUM 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 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 continue their education in an MFA program or entry into the art world.
The BFA schedule will allow you to dive deeply into your work, enriched by critiques, readings, and group discussions.
As a BFA student, in the Spring semester of the senior year, students have a spacious, semi-private studio for four consecutive months (or more) focused on developing their art practice while creating a body of work.
Learn from expert artists
Our low student-faculty ratio means you’ll get the individual attention you need to find your own voice. The program includes working with prominent faculty/artists, collaboration with peers and interaction with a diverse group of guest artists.
You’ll graduate grounded with a solid studio practice and ready to enter the world, be it moving onto graduate school or a career in art.
