Fine Arts Department
Northern’s Fine Arts brings together a vibrant community of artists, musicians, photographers, actors, writers, filmmakers, and dancers. We are home to integrated art forms, both traditional and contemporary, bringing young and old together to build their individual passions for the arts.
You will have the opportunity to study with accomplished professionals in the studio and performing arts who are dedicated to sharing their experiences and techniques with students. Northern also offers traditional New Mexican Arts: woodcarving, retablos, tinsmithing, and bulto carving. Academic courses in art history, art appreciation and NM art and architecture round out the program.
@Northern, culture and heritage arts are part of living history, blending rich traditions of Spanish and Native-American arts and modern art influences, with a unique mix of students and community artists in the classroom.
