TU’s Center for the Arts creates an artistic village on campus where students work together and mingle across disciplines and art forms. As the premier arts venue in Baltimore County, it provides you access to the school’s graduate-level studio areas, including the Holtzman M.F.A. Gallery, designated solely for graduate students to exhibit their work throughout the year. The center also hosts a full schedule of art exhibitions, musical and theatre performances, festivals, and the Asian Arts and Culture Center.
The art education program actively participates in state (MAEA) and national (NAEA) art education associations.
