The College of Fine Arts at The University of Arizona consists of four professional schools: the School of Art, School of Dance, Fred Fox School of Music, and the School of Theatre, Film and Television. Accomplished faculty, staff and alumni contribute to the College’s world-class reputation and to Tucson’s popular identity as ‘The City of Arts.’ The faculty itself is driven through their own artistic practices to inspire students and push them to their full potential.

The College is committed to the advancement of our knowledge, talent and skills as artists. Our goal is to explore the ‘cutting edge’ of new art forms and technologies through our strong foundations, innovation and traditional studies. Our conservatory-style training combined with a dedication to academics prepares our students from all schools for a successful career in the arts.

Therefore the College of Fine Arts desires to recruit students who are diverse in background, interests, academic and artistic talents. The College seeks to enroll students who have achieved academic success, have demonstrated personal growth, possess professional motivation, and present evidence of a strong preparation for study in the fine arts.

Candidates who meet the College’s standards should make significant contributions to the academic, artistic, and student programs both in the College of Fine Arts and the University of Arizona.

This summer Michelle Fricker attended the Alonzo King LINES Ballet Summer Intensive, thanks to the support from the College of Fine Arts Medici Circle donors.

#MediciMondays

Michelle is an undergraduate student in the The University of Arizona School of Dance. She took various technique classes, learned LINES repertoire and studied the concepts and ideologies that the company practices.

“I took choreographic workshops by the faculty, company members and the one and only Alonzo King and even had a performance at the end of the intensive where I got to perform work choreographed by Carmen Rozestraten.”

The #MediciScholar program helped make one of her dreams become a reality.

“Growing up, I dreamed about going to intensives just like this one but could never afford it. Going to these summer programs is vital in a dancer's training in preparation for life post-graduation. Going to LINES exposed me to a new way of moving with emphasis on a specific quality and intention that I had not prioritized in my training prior. I will forever value the connections I made with dancers and faculty and the personal growth in dance I made over the three weeks I was there.”

“I would like to thank my donors: Ms. Silverman and Judge Smelkinson! Thank you for all you do for aspiring artists like myself. I am so grateful to have been able to go to San Francisco this summer and continue my dance research which was made possible due to your donation.”
