Montserrat College of Art offers many programs throughout the year that enable you to demonstrate your individual talents and take risks in your learning and art-making that only an intimate, supportive community can provide. Our faculty members are professional teachers and artists who will become trusted mentors and lifelong friends.
In addition to the amazing classroom experiences, we also offer programs in personal development, with a focus on developing ‘healthy artists’ and current issues. We also provide our students with opportunities to visit galleries in Boston and New York City. Montserrat College of Art also has the Bear Gallery, a student run art gallery that provides students with the valuable experience of organizing and operating a professional gallery AND showing their work!
If you have any questions about any of our programs, please send me an e-mail at [email protected]. I’m here to make your experience the best it can be.

HAPPENING EVERY WEEK!
If it’s Thursday night, there is something going on at Montserrat! Watch for announcements about open mic nights, movie nights, video game tournaments, dance club….(almost) anything goes!
Thursdays at 11:30 am
Student Voice is the student government forum for sharing ideas geared toward improving the student experience at Montserrat. All students are encouraged to participate!
Healthy Artists Table
Each week during the lunch break, a topic of interest will be highlighted at the Healthy Artist Table. Past topics have included voter registration, cancer awareness, alcohol awareness, HPV info, Great American Smoke-out, good emotional health, stress relief, and so much more!
HAPPENING EACH SEMESTER!
The drag show provides students a chance to dress up in drag. A winner who is chosen by the audience at each show returns to defend his or her title during the next scheduled show. This event typically happens around Halloween and again around Valentine’s Day.
Open Mic Night
Open to the campus community, this is a great event which highlights the other talents of our campus in a comfortable and welcoming setting! Do you do improv? Play the ukulele? Sing? Write and/or read poetry? Bring your talent to an Open Mic Night! Usually happens at least twice a semester.
Big Table Talk
Once a month, campus and guest speakers make informal presentations to students on a variety of topics, inviting conversation and questions from participants. Bring a brown bag lunch and join the conversation.
Late Night Breakfast
Right around the time you are getting ready for finals, we hold a Late Night Breakfast. With food prepared and served by the staff and faculty, take a break and enjoy a little bit of down time and some great food! Pajamas are acceptable!
HAPPENING AT LEAST ONCE PER YEAR!
Celebrate the end of the fall semester with a Bagel Break on the last day of classes
