Founded in 2005, the MVC Art Club’s mission is to attract students to come together and engage with others who share the same love and admiration for the arts. The Art Club will not only invigorate and promote the arts at Mountain View College, but will strive to raise awareness and appreciation of the arts in the community by providing and encouraging student members the opportunity to volunteer time, effort, and ideas to help make this possible.

"[MVC] Art Club fund raised money... to donate ...to our campus for art supplies. I was so grateful to receive such a generous act of kindness. I utilized every penny to purchase special tools and supplies that we couldn't afford with our general funds. Their financial support and hard work made a difference in the student artwork by incorporating new textures, and medias. I admire their willingness to reach out and support their 75211 community."
