Minnesota Art & Design Schools

Minnesota is home for artists--one reason aspiring art and design students can find courses and programs across the state. The "Twin Cities" of Minneapolis and St. Paul form the center of the state's business, industry, and internationally recognized arts community. Art and design students in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area can draw career inspiration from the cities' many artistic venues, from large, nationally acclaimed galleries like the Minneapolis Institute of Arts to small studies dedicated to local artists.
