Observe, Analyze, Create

A private art school experience at a public school cost.

The School of Art and Design at UA Little Rock offers engaging and inspiring art instruction at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Our art degrees in studio art, art history, and art education prepare students for fulfilling careers as professional artists, and for careers in museums, businesses, schools, and more.

Our students have opportunities for research, internships, and mentorship, and many students experience the fulfillment of having their works on display in our galleries.

We support the arts community by hosting a summer arts program for high school students and teachers, artists workshops, and funding opportunities for alumni artists.
