More information

Representation, abstraction, experimentation, line, color, form and perspective can all be explored as you find your own special vision. The reasons for taking a fine arts course at the School of Visual Arts are as varied as the people who study with us. Some do it for fun. Commercial artists study the fine arts to refocus their thinking. Exhibiting fine artists come to us to learn how to use new tools or improve a technique, and create work in our facilities.

Our faculty of artists teaches a core curriculum in drawing, painting, sculpture and printmaking. In addition, we offer courses in jewelry making, blacksmithing and professional practices.

Advanced courses examine autobiographical, political, narrative and abstract concepts as they relate to your work. Let us help you tap into your latent creative potential. At all stages of creative development, SVA's community is a place to learn and grow in the fine arts.

    Disperse!

    Covered in plastic sheets, The Hole looks like a construction site or maybe a quarantine zone, which we might need. But look at the airbrushed and spray painted art in the show and you’ll get the...
