Crimson Clay

Crimson Clay brings together students who share a common enthusiasm for working with clay. Whether focused on functional or sculpture clay art, each member works toward a greater understanding of material and process. Every semester, members seek to benefit the larger group and broader community by building relationships with local partners. This is accomplished, in part, through the exhibition of student artwork as well as fund-raising events. As a result, students receive funding assistance from the club to attend conferences or ceramic-based research activities throughout the United States.

General Art Club

The General Art Club is a student-run arts club at the University of Alabama. Expressing ourselves through art, both professionally and for fun, is the basis of our organization. We believe that everyone should have access to artistic communities and experiences, regardless of skill-level or college major. Our organization is home to aspiring professional art majors, engineering majors with artistic hobbies and those simply wanting to learn the basics and have fun. We aim for one large project each semester, which may include public events, artist workshops and visitors or exhibitions. Additionally, we have small events and activities to practice new techniques. Our main priority is to connect students to each other and the community through art.


UA AIGA is UA’s student chapter of AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts): A team of students at The University of Alabama united by design, creativity, and professionalism. We are dedicated to supporting and connecting a variety of creatives and graphic artists. We aim to increase leadership and design skills through the facilitation of a design community. This looks like a variety of social and professional opportunities. We are looking to increase the abilities and access of members to design work and internships and host a variety of professional development workshops like portfolio development and client interactions. We hope to inspire and connect people across campus and in the Tuscaloosa community. Instagram | UA’s Sourcepage
