Fine Arts Department

The Department of Fine Arts is comprised of visual and performing arts. Music students have many performance opportunities, while theatre students get hands-on set construction and acting experience. Art students get a chance for their works to be exhibited. Instructors are highly educated and competent professionals who actively practice their arts at Northwest and in the surrounding communities. Advisors work with senior institutions to ensure a successful transfer from Northwest to a four-year college.
