Welcome to the UMHB Art Department

UMHB Art students are challenged to develop an aesthetic and creative intelligence through practicing a visual arts discipline. Experiential learning happens here in a studio setting under the guidance and mentorship of professional artists and designers in a broad range of media and professional approaches. There is a special atmosphere of encouragement and joy for the creative process in the Art Department.
