A spirited and engaging environment, the Northern Vermont University-Lyndon Visual Arts Department provides a venue for dynamic self-expression. Our programs challenge students to become adept problem-solvers and to not only expand the breadth of their design, communication, and artistic techniques, but also to enrich their own personal aesthetic. Through an awareness of art history and contemporary visual culture, students develop a context for their own innovative practice and developing visual literacy. Through hands-on coursework that demands original thought, our program stimulates critical thinking and instills a passion for the visual arts.
