The UCLA Department of Art is committed to a professional art training within the context of a liberal arts university. Visual artists are responsible for some of the most provocative and enduring expressions of culture. At UCLA, emerging artists are provided with the tools they need to express themselves in ways that are meaningful in the social context in which they live and work.

The department attracts gifted and motivated students who thrive in an environment that encourages autonomy. They are drawn to not only the outstanding creative faculty and the University's resources but also the program, which encourages them to develop as artists at one of the world's leading art centers. The result is a distinguished list of graduates who have made significant contributions in their field.
