Stepping into creativity at UAA


The UAA Fine Arts Building is home to a vibrant community of students and faculty in which we currently offer two academic programs and eleven areas of study. It is a place of discovery where students find their own unique way to communicate and express themselves visually. Students are mentored to be courageous, ask thoughtful questions, solve problems creatively and develop the skill sets necessary to be engaged professionals.  Dedicated faculty, challenging curricula, well-equipped studios, a dynamic roster of visiting artists, and a gallery that focuses on national and international art exhibitions are the aspects of our department which empowers and prepares students for graduate study and fine art careers.
