Bachelor of Fine Arts

Southwest School of Art is a nationally recognized leader in visual arts education, offering a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, as well as studio art programs for adults, children, and teens. Graduates from Southwest School of Art’s BFA degree program acquire the business, critical thinking, and studio skills necessary for careers as working artists and engaged citizens.

  TESTIMONIAL

"Without a doubt, what makes this program so special is it’s deep sense of community that I feel here amongst the students, faculty and staff. It feels great to know that while they all want to support my growth as an artist, it’s just as important to them that I also grow as a person. Each one of us matters."

Josue Romero, Class of 2019
