Starting March 30 until May 8, 2020: The Fine Arts Building will be open from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM. Due to the University regulations regarding COVID-19 we will limit 5 students at a time to a classroom and studio labs.
The University of Nebraska at Kearney's Art and Design Department strives to prepare students for a professional career in the arts—whether that be studio art, design, or art education—through hands-on courses and real-world experiences within the field.
MAKE YOUR REALITY
Art and Design students get a well-rounded foundational art experience studying and implementing the basic principles of design while also exploring their creative ideas and personal expression. From the first day, students are encouraged to explore, experiment, solve problems, and think critically so that they can make their reality at UNK.
In order to assist students with additional financial support, UNK’s Art and Design department offers scholarships to both incoming freshmen and currently enrolled students. Scholarships are talent-based, requiring students to submit a digital portfolio of their work to reviewed by the scholarship committee.

There are those students who not only make an art department stronger but they also help to raise the cool factor. Libbie Cramer is one of those students. As a fifth-year super senior within the Visual Communication and Design program, Libbie explored some other options before landing on design. Since making the switch from exercise science to art and design, Libbie has accrued several design awards and created stunning work for a wide range of applications from package design to scientific illustrations to children’s pop-up books.
