The Hartford Art School campus provides students with all of the cultural, academic, social, and athletic amenities of a thriving, contemporary university. The Visual Arts Complex of the Hartford Art School occupies a central location on the University of Hartford campus. The recently renovated Taub Hall and the new Renée Samuels Center houses offices, classrooms, laboratories, and studios for printmaking, photography, painting, drawing, foundation studies and media arts. Preparing students to be practicing artists and designers is at the heart of our mission. The Hartford Art School reflects a dynamic balance between the traditional and the emergent arts and aspires to provide an educational environment that supports the creative and intellectual development of individuals at all levels of the institution.
