The Visual Art Foundry

Visual Art Foundry

The Visual Art Foundry is—simply put—a community for the art students of John Brown University. We aim to provide a place that encourages and inspires graphic designers, illustrators, animators, photographers, and cinematographers to think critically and creatively. Through workshops, show-n-tell times and events, we seek innovative ways to connect art students while enriching their art education experience. It is a place to "be cool."
