New Hampshire Institute of Art

About

The New Hampshire Institute of Art (NHIA) is the oldest and largest non-profit arts institution in New Hampshire, founded in 1898 and today offering undergraduate (BFA, Dual Degree BFA/MAT), graduate (MFA, MAT), and community education programs (Youth Arts, Pre-College, Community Education, Professional Development) serving over 2,000 students annually on two campuses in Manchester and Sharon/Peterborough, New Hampshire.
 
We are a tight-knit community of creative thinkers, artists, designers, writers, and art educators who use the power of our creativity to transform the community around us. We are a haven for students at every stage of their artistic journey, a place where artists can explore possibilities without fear and engage with people and experiences that will shape them and their future.
 
NHIA is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). NHIA is also a member of the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD).
