Welcome to the Department of Art at UAA

The Department of Art aims to prepare and empower students to use their artistic abilities to make a difference in society. A comprehensive multi-studio approach encourages independent thinking, strengthens creativity, and develops a knowledge of the critical and historical aspects of art.

Our upcoming academic year is rich with events, gallery openings, knowledgeable (and new) faculty and opportunities for artistic growth. Visit this site often for updates.
