The visual was our first language. It reaches beyond borders. Visual expression is as crucial to shaping our identity as it is to fueling the economy. Art starts conversations and teaches us about life and what it means to be human. In creating art, we connect with the God who created us. Creativity demands our whole being—mind, body, and soul.
The SAMC Art + Design program is grounded in a robust liberal arts core. Balancing theory with hands-on studio time, offsite visits, and vocational placements, our program explores how art and design show up in the world and how they transform culture. Every day, our students engage with culture, critique it, create it, and openly explore the intersections between faith and art. Learning within a tight-knit community, our students receive one-on-one mentorship throughout the creative process to produce work that is bold and inspired—from inspiration to installation. Whether your interest lies in painting, drawing, photography, digital design… discover your unique voice here as an artist and innovator.
