Step Into Creativity

Step Into Creativity

The UAA Fine Arts Building is the home of a vibrant community of student artists and faculty. We currently offer two academic programs and 8 areas of emphasis. The Art Department has earned the highest level of accreditation from the National Association of Schools of Art and Design, and is the only nationally accredited program in Alaska. From our investment in facilities, a dynamic roster of visiting artists and lecturers, a gallery that focuses on national and international art exhibitions, to challenging curricula, we are focused on developing the kind of courage, observation abilities and analytical skills they are integral to the continuation of our vibrant culture.
