I applaud your interest in a degree in Art and your desire to further your education!

The goal of the Art Department at Mount St. Mary's College, in Los Angeles, is to provide you with support on your journey to becoming a young professional. We strive to help you develop and refine your path of interest, and to gain skills that you will need for your adventure ahead.

Los Angeles, home to one of the most diverse populations in the world, attracts creative people working across a wide spectrum of professional careers in museums, television studios, city government and corporate advertising, education and much more. Mount St. Mary's College will prepare you with both the technical and cognitive skills needed to participate at a high level as you begin your career in the arts.

Among the many benefits of enrolling in our Art program:

  • Faculty members teaching your classes are working artists.
  • Our ratio of students to instructors is very low.
  • We provide all needed supplies for Art majors.
  • Art labs are open 24/7 and are well equipped.
  • Frequent travel opportunities have recently included trips to New York, Philadelphia and San Francisco. This year students are going to Paris. Next year, a trip to Rome is planned.
  • We offer specialty workshops and learning opportunities that are not listed in the College catalog.
  • Our Chalon campus is home to the well-recognized José Drudis-Biada Art Gallery, exhibiting the work of contemporary Southern California artists.
  • We have an Artist-in-Residence program that brings working artists to the department, usually for a full semester.
  • We cultivate internship opportunities for our students.
  • You can enhance your options for an advanced degree and for specific workplace environments by pursuing a double major or minor.

Please contact me if I can provide additional information about our program. I look forward to meeting you!
