Studio classes include drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, and photography. A culminating class for Art majors is the Professional Practices Seminar, which prepares students for careers in the Arts, for transfer to universities, and for connecting to community arts organizations. Along with these studio classes, Survey of Art and Art History courses round out a strong general education.

Numerous opportunities encourage students to exhibit their artwork, including the annual spring Student Exhibition, displays throughout Boswell Hall and the Molstead Library, and the nearby NIC Sculpture Park within the Gathering Gardens (shown below right).
