Introducing the New Hampshire Institute of Art (NHIA), one of Capture Higher Ed’s newest partners!
Founded in 1898, New Hampshire Institute of Art is the oldest and largest non-profit arts institution in New Hampshire, serving more than 2,000 students a year on two campuses in Manchester and Sharon/Peterborough. The main campus is in the heart of Manchester — the largest city in New England north of Boston — with residence halls, studios and classrooms side-by-side with cafes, shops and galleries. The campus is an environment designed to inspire, challenge and nurture creativity.
As their website states: “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.”
The artistic journeys and possibilities are many and varied at NHIA, including undergraduate and graduate programs in art education, ceramics, creative writing, fine arts, foundations, design, illustration and photography. The college enriches specialized studio work with a heavy dose of liberal arts coursework, and its low-residency master of fine arts program allows students to earn their degrees on their own terms, in their own time.
New Hampshire Institute of Art runs on the belief that art is absolutely essential to our culture. That’s why the college hosts events and exhibits that serve as both an educational tool for their academic programs and as a way to inspire, educate and engage its community.
Capture is inspired and engaged to help NHIA recruit the next generation of culture-shaping artists, writers, designers and thinkers.
