Studying art can encourage creativity, critical thinking, emotional growth and depth of learning. Topics of study may include art appreciation, history and foundations, as well as hands-on instruction in drawing, design, painting, sculpture, fiber arts, art metals, ceramics, watercolor and digital art.

Art courses are listed under the four-letter rubric (course prefix) ARTS.

In and out of the classroom, art is a vital part of North Lake's environment, with student and professional works displayed throughout campus. Our students include a mix of art majors seeking degrees, non-majors taking art as an elective, and others simply enriching their lives through art.

NLC's art faculty consists of professional artists and art historians who know firsthand the value of art for the individual and society. Students are taught to appreciate visual form in art and nature and to make art with paints, pencils, clay, metals and computers.
