Welcome to the School of Art & Design
The School of Art & Design has been a leader in the preparation of distinguished artists and art educators for over 100 years. The rigor and quality of our program is reflected in our NASAD accreditation (National Association of Schools of Art and Design).
Whether students are seeking a bachelor or masters degree in art, our challenging and comprehensive curriculum integrates in-depth studio processes, aesthetics, criticism, and art history into each program area. Studio and classroom exploration takes place in three adjacent buildings on campus which feature renovated facilities, first-rate resources, small class sizes and individual instruction. Students are provided with numerous opportunities to investigate technical, conceptual, and creative approaches for the creation of art, as well as recognize the impact visual art holds on history, community and culture.
The School of Art & Design’s faculty members are noted for exhibition records in local, national and international galleries, publications in textbooks and journals, providing continuing instruction in Colorado schools and museums, and lectures at state and national conferences. The diversity of our faculty’s knowledge translates into an enriching and meaningful classroom involvement that incorporates real-world experience preparing our students for successful and rewarding careers in the arts. School of Art & Design graduates excel as Graphic Designers, Art Educators, Photographers, Studio artists, Art historians, Gallery directors, and Art directors.
I invite you to browse our website and explore the opportunities available in the School of Art & design. Please feel free to contact our faculty or staff if you have any questions.
