The Southwest School of Art is a nationally recognized leader in arts education.
Southwest School of Art is a place of inclusion and a forum for ideas in South Texas. As a community of artists—beginners and professionals alike—our commitment is to stay true to the School’s four-decade-long legacy of innovative educational programs and commitment to historic and cultural preservation.
Our institutional mission is to teach, preserve, and advance the visual arts. We expand the creative potential of our community and connect cultures of the world through participatory learning experience. An additional part of our mission is to preserve the former Ursuline Convent and Academy as a place of historic significance.
