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.

JADEN ESTES CARLSON
That’s right! After a little hiatus, we are bringing back the Student Spotlight! And there’s no one better to kick this off this belated return than Jaden Estes Carlson. Jaden is a soon-to-be graduated senior within the Art Education program with an emphasis in Ceramics. And this woman can produce! Her senior exhibition is currently dominating the Walker Gallery with an incredibly colorful flair, a fitting visual simile for her prismatic personality.
