Department of Fine Arts

Fine Arts at the University of New Orleans provides a unique and engaging educational experience to all of our students.  We offer small studio class settings that blend technical instruction with individual creative freedom.  A wide range of instruction in both traditional and media arts allows students to explore interdisciplinary art practice that reflects modern artistic trends in art and industry.  We encourage the development of your unique visual language, and help you frame it with art history and visual cultural references.  With a combination of theory and practice you will find yourself prepared for the rigors of the ever-expanding arts industry.  As a public university, we are dedicated to being a cultural resource for the greater New Orleans metropolitan community and recognize the inherent value of the visual arts as central to a dynamic environment. Diversity in all respects is vital to us as a creative community as we strive to build an inclusive faculty and student body.
