Imagination & Creation

Art

Brevard College immerses you in the world of creation with the only bounds being the limits of imagination. Faculty nurture creativity through engagement with practicing artists and peers in the studio, classroom, and field settings. 

The town of Brevard also supports the arts. Dozens of art galleries call Brevard "home," and the fourth Friday gallery walks allow visitors and locals alike to appreciate the creative spirit that is Brevard.
