NHTI’s Visual Arts degree program helps you acquire a thorough knowledge of visual expression and a broad exposure to the history of art in preparation for transfer to four-year colleges and universities and a career in the visual arts. We emphasize visual perception, technical acuity, and artistic philosophy geared toward developing your personal aesthetic. The first-year curriculum provides you with a common foundation in basic artistic techniques; the following year, you focus on advanced studio disciplines and prepare a professional portfolio of your work. The Visual Arts degree program welcomes outside fine arts courses; however, transfers of courses are not automatically accepted without departmental portfolio review and agreement.

The limited student-to-faculty ratio facilitates a respectful and safe environment to develop inherent abilities. We encourage mentorships, independent study, internships, and exhibition opportunities. You will have the opportunity to exhibit your work at the end of each semester.
