Join us as we champion the transformative power of visual arts and design. Our students will be the innovative leaders of tomorrow!
As one of the best arts schools in the nation, teaching art has been a vital part of UNT since it was first taught in 1894, only four years after the institution was founded. Cora Stafford, an imaginative leader who served on the faculty and as director for four decades before retiring in 1964, played a major role in guiding the art program to the reputation it maintains today. CVAD's creative, caring and tenacious culture sets the stage for continued excellence!
We believe art and design are essential to the human experience.
Art is what defines us. As educators, designers, makers, researchers and scholars, from distinguished
research professors to entering undergrads, we are a community of the creative and the curious. Collectively,
we encourage creative futures for a diverse population on an increasingly global stage. Through rigorous arts-based education, arts- and client-based studio practice, scholarship and research, we engage with communities both near and far.
Join us as we challenge "what is" by exploring "what could be..."
