Art Department

North Idaho College Art Program

The Art Department at NIC welcomes all creative thinkers and art makers to their dynamic program, which includes a diverse range of art classes and opportunities.

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.
The Art Faculty are committed to student success, continuously exploring new opportunities through innovative teaching methods, interdisciplinary connections, and their own active art making and exhibitions.
