A vibrant creative community
Nestled in the heart of Nashville’s booming creative community Belmont’s O’More College of Architecture & Design and Watkins College of Art unties aesthetics, critical thinking and function together with a focus on growth and artistic expression. Students are encouraged to develop their talents and expand them–not simply as an intellectual exercise, but specifically so that they can go on and better the world around them through purposeful and meaningful art, design and architecture. We engage students in a creative learning experience that begins on the day they arrive and continues into their professional careers. 

O’More and Watkins faculty and alumni are embedded in the greater art and design industries, both locally and nationally, giving students a real-world education and extensive resources for professional networking. Our faculty is comprised of accomplished practitioners in the field who have lived the creative experience and are committed to sharing their knowledge with students through hands-on instruction in a vibrant and collaborative studio setting.

Come experience our creative community by scheduling an in person-visit or learn about our campus through Belmont’s online tour. Find out for yourself how life at Belmont can shape your future.
