Fine Arts

We are an academic community of artists unique in location, open studios, small class size and interdisciplinary approach to visual practice.

As a Fine Arts student at SNC, you will focus on skills, experimentation, and conversation that foster creative solutions and entrepreneurial thinking to address the challenges and responsibilities contemporary artists face in a shifting global environment. The style of instruction and dialogue are designed to provide an adaptable, challenging, and inspiring studio environment. Solo B.F.A. exhibitions and a committee structure that mirrors many recognized graduate programs offer detailed mentorship and guidance in the development of a body of work. This serious attention of the committee at the undergraduate level provides you with the confidence to realize your vision and, as our alumni attest, the resources to adapt to varied manifestations of professional preparedness for art and for life.
