ART CENTER GALLERY at Anna Maria College

Whether in art, music, or theatre,  students develop the skills and knowledge necessary to prepare them for a wide range of career options as well as the possibility of graduate study in their particular fields.
In addition to the broad-based education and sense of ethics that numerous employers in the business and service sectors desire in recruits, the School of Visual and Performing Arts offers programs focused on specific professional skills in music, performance, theatre, teaching, graphic design, studio arts, art and business and in the therapeutic dimensions of art and music therapy.
