FINE ART

TO EXCEL IN THE DESIGN WORLD, YOU NEED TO BE GROUNDED IN THE BASICS.

A good designer has the ability to manipulate two- and three-dimensional forms with a full understanding of space, color and composition. At O’More College of Design, we teach a good designer and turn them into a great one.

What you learn in our Fine Arts Department over 18 credit hours will have a different application to each of our three majors, but there is no question that a broader foundation in the fine arts can give you a creative and competitive advantage—and can make you more adaptable as both a student and a professional designer.

The Fine Arts Department will give you a better understanding of your tools and will be a greater resource for inspiration. And just as our other departments are staffed with industry professionals, our fine arts instructors aren’t just teachers–they’re talented artists themselves.

You don’t have to be a great artist when you enroll at O’More, but you will be a better one when you graduate.


LIBERAL ARTS

Just as fine arts instruction will give you the background to become a stronger designer, a liberal arts education will also provide you with a more competitive edge in the design world. A designer without an understanding of the larger world—global traditions and trends—cannot be as versatile as one who has a broad base of knowledge.

While we are primarily a design college, we also realize the importance of preparing well-rounded citizens—people with the passion and the ability to make a difference in our world. At O’More, students take 30 credit hours in the areas of communications, the humanities, mathematics, behavioral and natural sciences, and business. There is a great deal of flexibility within our liberal arts curriculum, allowing you to choose the subjects that interest you the most, including unique courses such as Exploring Spirituality, Marriage and the Family, Sacred Spaces, and Educational Wellness.
