Welcome to the Visual Arts department homepage

Our mission is to educate future artists who will go out and share their talents with the world.  Be it in traditional studio media or the digital world of graphic design, our aim is to equip students with the tools necessary to become successful artists, designers, and professionals in the field.  Our faculty is filled with experienced and accomplished artists and scholars dedicated to student success.  To the wider community we hope to expose the Samford campus and Birmingham region to a diverse array of visual arts, and foster an environment of creative excellence and patronage for the arts.  Whether your interest is in taking a drawing class, choosing a major, or visiting the Samford gallery to take in our current exhibition, we welcome you to the art department at Samford.
