Through this Visual Arts at AI Miami International University of Art and Design you’ll focus on a primary medium and work closely with instructors to develop your own personal ideas and artistic process as you explore areas like history, aesthetics, and world cultures to broaden your understanding of contemporary art. 


The Visual Arts program at AI Miami International University of Art and Design is designed to emphasize a dynamic combination of traditional skills and today’s technology. Visual Arts is not only about being a creative artist in the studio; it is about having choices in employment and artistic direction. A Visual Arts student is a creative, individualistic thinker who has a passion for art and design. During the course of the program, students will have the opportunity to develop a wide and varied set of skills emphasizing both the technical and conceptual aspects of art, making a program graduate a versatile and flexible artist and designer in today’s world. Students start their studies with a solid foundation in design, color theory, and drawing. 

They also learn current creative software programs. After sampling different media and subjects in our program, each student can choose a specific area of concentration or choose to work across a range of subjects such as painting, photography, ceramics, drawing, or digital media. Upon graduation, the student may choose to seek an entry-level creative career or continue on to a graduate program.

You’ll document your influences and thought processes through a written thesis and exhibition of your work. And with your graduate degree, you’ll be ready to become a practicing fine artist, an artist-in-residence, an exhibition curator, educator or designer.
