Welcome to the Department of Fine Arts

The CSN Department of Fine Arts consists of Performing and Visual Arts.

The Fine Arts programs include Art & Art History, Dance, Music, and Theatre and are designed for both young aspiring artists and lifelong learners. Take a few moments to look over our programs and read about our outstanding faculty. We feel that we have the best full-time and part-time instructors in the business. The CSN Art & Art History Program offers courses for majors, non-majors and the general population of students. Classes range from art history to digital imaging and everything in between. Our Theatre Program provides fine training in both the acting and technical areas, and mounts several productions each year. The CSN Dance Program is an internationally acclaimed organization that tours regularly and offers tremendous opportunities for learning. In the Music Program, be sure to check out our Associate of Arts degree in Fine Arts with a Music emphasis, and the Certificate of Achievement in Music Business and Technology. We also offer just about every imaginable type of ensemble, from vocal jazz to percussion, chamber chorale to concert band, symphony orchestra to jazz ensemble.

Any of the courses in Art & Art History can fulfill the Fine Arts/Humanities/Social Sciences requirements of most AA, AS, AAS, degrees at CSN. Many of the courses in Dance, Music, and Theatre can also fulfill the requirements, check with your advisor or contact the individual programs for more information.

Las Vegas is an exciting and unique community, which just happens to be the home of some of the finest musicians, actors, dancers, and theatre technicians, artists, and art historians anywhere in the world. At CSN, you will have the opportunity to work with many of these great professionals, both in the classroom and on the stage.

If you have been thinking about pursuing higher education in one of these fields, don't wait another minute. Email or call us, and let CSN help you toward your educational and artistic goals!
