Mission: Memphis College of Art is dedicated to teaching the practice, history, and appreciation of visual art and design, while challenging all students to reach their highest individual potential. We prepare graduates to succeed in their careers and change the world through their creativity. Nestled right in the middle of a sprawling, tree-laden, 342-acre urban oasis is the architectural marvel known as Rust Hall, the main campus building of Memphis College of Art. Every classroom, every window, every open walkway was created to inspire and unleash the artist within you. Its the type of setting you really have to see to fully appreciate.MCA is solely dedicated to educating art professionals, who impart knowledge through visual art, by preparing students to think creatively, critically, and to solve problems. Here, the emphasis isnt on artmaking alone, its equally on the development of ideas in a unique programs from which talented and successful artists emerge. MCA recognizes that living fully means living artfully, and that nurturing the artful spirit is a means to developing a complete person. Our small faculty to student ratio fosters an environment where talent flourishes with the development of skills and insights needed to realize creative, artistic and academic potential.
