Kimbell Tour for Art History

TCU’s School of Art holds accreditation from the National Association of Schools of Art & Design (NASAD). Here you’ll learn from professors who are active in the arts by publishing research, exhibiting their work in museums and galleries, and lecturing nationally and internationally. Because the School of Art offers a personal learning environment, you’ll connect with your professors and access experiences outside the classroom.

Examine the bold brushwork of Claude Monet or the delicate touch of Fra Angelico up close. As a TCU student, you have access to world-class museums, where many of your classes meet to discuss original works of art. In addition to gaining familiarity with the impressive permanent collections of area museums, you can view special exhibitions, take advantage of behind-the-scenes tours by museum staff, and attend lectures, symposia and gallery tours.

In TCU’s interdisciplinary learning environment, you’ll explore all media from traditional art practice — such as drawing and painting, hands-on techniques in sculpture, ceramics, photography and printmaking — to training in the latest technologies, such as 3D printing, videography and robotics.

Choose from a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses of study, in the following areas:
