Ouachita Baptist University’s School of Fine Arts strives for a balance between a Christian liberal arts education and an applied or professional education through a challenging atmosphere of creativity and collaboration. The School of Fine Arts and its faculty are dedicated to facilitating critical thinking, the creative process, and personal expression by developing and maintaining curricular and performance programming which emphasizes the creative process. They seek to produce artists and scholars who are able to integrate their intellect and faith with their art, and their art with their worldview.
The school encourages the larger university community to appreciate all the Arts through various concerts, exhibits, productions, master classes, and lecture demonstrations. By providing an enriching exposure to the challenges and possibilities of the Arts, the school of Fine Arts encourages other disciplines to explore the Arts as an integral part of the Christian liberal arts education.
The school consists of the Division of Applied Arts (the Department of Theatre Arts and the Department of Visual Arts) and the Division of Music.
