About Fine Arts

Do you have dreams? Have you ever wondered why people create? Have you ever picked up a pencil or pen and begun sketching an image or idea in the middle of a non-related art class? Are you inspired by the sounds of Bach, Miles Davis and Buddhist throat singing and wondered what they have in common? Have you ever felt the urge to paint your face with makeup and recite the lines of Sophocles, Shakespeare, or Samuel Beckett? The Arts at Maryville College address these questions and more. Whether as a major, minor or as a participant in a play, a musical ensemble or an art project, students explore their creativity and their self-understanding. The faculty are here to guide and expose students to what is possible and how to dream dreams. So, what are in your dreams?

Facilities

The Fine Arts Department is housed in the Clayton Center for the Arts at Maryville College.
