From the President: Paula Owen

Dear friends and prospective students,

Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about Southwest School of Art and what makes it such an extraordinary place!

Since 1996, it has been my privilege to lead this organization and watch it's impact on the visual arts community continue to grow. The cornerstone of that growth is our BFA degree program, which highlights our dedication to developing 21st Century skills through art.

Our students hone critical thinking and problem solving skills while expanding their ability to think creatively, work collaboratively, and communicate clearly…all within a supportive environment that ensures individualized instruction and mentorship from outstanding faculty and access to state-of-the-art facilities. Because we value and teach both traditional and innovative skills and ideas, and have designed a unique and holistic general curriculum, our students are equipped for a multitude of professional pursuits and are prepared to be engaged citizens.

I look forward to seeing you on campus!

Paula Owen
