Maybe you belong onstage – or backstage. Maybe you were made to create perfect paintings – or compose masterful music. No matter your artistic calling, your home is the NSU School of Fine Arts.

The NSU School of Fine Arts is the largest in South Dakota, consisting of two departments: art, and music & theatre.


The spacious, gracious Johnson Fine Arts Center hosts more than 60 fine arts events each year, put on by the talented students and faculty of the NSU School of Fine Arts.

At Northern, talented faculty will inspire you to grow as an artist and excel in your chosen passion.​
