Art helps us to see, and how we see determines how we live. If you are a visually stimulated person and love to manipulate art materials to express yourself and your worldview, then think about participating in Arts Discover Day at Belhaven University.

Visual Art/Graphic Design/Tradigital

You will have the opportunity to check out the exciting things going on with the Belhaven Art & Design Department, tour our magnificent art building, visit the exhibit in the Art Gallery, and more. Attend workshops taught by Belhaven faculty and experience firsthand what a college art class is like.

Registration will open for this event 6 weeks in advance.
