Visual Arts (A.A.) - L

Program Description

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.
