Visiting Artist Intensives

Request Information

Get up close and personal with the greatest talents in the art world through the New Hampshire Institute of Art's Visiting Artist Intensives. These special offerings bring top artists to NHIA’s Manchester or Sharon Arts campus for an immersive week-long experience designed for intermediate or advanced students. You’ll be part of a small group working intimately with a world-renowned artist to sharpen your technique, explore powerful themes, and deepen your personal voice, bringing you to new levels of creativity and accomplishment.

Visiting Artist Intensives


Intensives take place over the course of a week where you’ll live, breathe, and dream art. The program consists of 4-5 days of full day classes where you’ll receive ample individual attention from the artist. You’ll spend your evenings in the studio putting what you’ve learned into practice. Housing is not included, but NHIA is happy to assist students coming from out of town with finding suitable accommodations.
