Portfolio reviews update:

Due to COVID-19, in-person portfolio reviews are cancelled until further notice. All portfolio reviews will be done electronically. To do so, you need to create digital files of your portfolio and email them to Mitch Messina at or submit them by creating a SlideRoom account (free).

What makes an environment conducive to artistic expression?
We believe it’s a faculty made up of highly-talented practicing artists, a curriculum rich in fine arts and liberal arts courses, a breath-taking campus, and small class size. The Nazareth Art and Design Department offers a variety of programs that take advantage of these assets.
