The Visual Arts Community is a great place for students to live if they are interested in studio art, graphic design, jewelry design, photography, or fine arts. This is a community where students share their talents with each other. An art studio for the community is provided in the residence center where community members can work and hang out together. The art studio is stocked with supplies and equipment for students to work on individual projects. Together students create a strong community of creativity and support.
