Start a movement

String musicians in rehearsal
Start A Movement We educate visionary artists, scholars and communications professionals ready to make an impact on the world around them.

Challenge yourself to find your voice, hone your craft and make the world better.

At Meadows, you'll start creating on day one. You’ll do more than prepare for the future at Meadows—you’ll shape it in your first year. We challenge each student to develop his or her gifts to the highest level. We challenge students to find their unique voices and to develop the highest level of craftsmanship. While message and craft are the foundations of art, at Meadows we also practice entrepreneurship, outreach and engagement because they make an artist employable and relevant.

It’s especially popular in the digital art world but has expanded into other collectibles such as trading cards, comic books, games and more.
