Fine Art Student Activities
The Milwaukee area and Mount Mary University embrace and support artists and creativity. As a fine art student, you can participate in many activities outside of class and in the community.
Studio Collective is the student art organization at Mount Mary. The group promotes art collaboration across disciplines in the School of Arts and Design, cultivates scholarship and leadership, and fosters professional art development, friendships and service.
Studio Collective members can attend special art lectures and artist demonstrations, visit galleries and museums and participate in other art-related activities. They also assist in teaching Creative Connections, Mount Mary’s annual youth summer art program.
Contact Jordan Anderson, faculty adviser, for more information on participating in Studio Collective.
Latin for "to make, create, produce," CREO is an annual celebration of creativity that showcases student work from Mount Mary fine art, fashion, graphic design and interior design programs. CREO is forward-thinking and ever-developing. It's an opportunity for a cross-generational audience to experience a cross-disciplinary slice of Milwaukee's creative talent.
Fine art students plan and display their work in a gallery space at CREO each year, teaching them important skills in how to hang a show, prepare for an exhibit, promote a show and host an artist reception. The event attracts hundreds of visitors and art enthusiasts each year.
