Our goal is to provide exceptional visual arts programs and dynamic educational and artistic experiences. Converse’s Department of Art and Design is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD). You will learn at the hands of dedicated practicing artists, award-winning educators, and skilled professionals in their fields. We encourage Converse students to not only learn art and design but to live art and design!
We value the artistic skills you have already developed and Converse offers several Visual Arts Scholarship Days for dedicated high school senior art students. After a personal interview and portfolio presentation, students may be considered for four-year awards of up to $2,000 per year.
Explore our programs in art and design below, and make your plans for a campus visit. We’re eager to meet you!
