Open House Info

The University of Hartford offers Preview Days in the fall for prospective applicants and their families. Visit for the day to learn about the admission process and become aquainted with Hartford Art School’s facilities, course offerings, faculty, and staff, and gain a comprehensive understanding of what the future holds for artists. Participate in faculty and student studio demonstrations and hear from admission staff on careers in the arts featuring our alumni.

Every spring the Hartford Art School hosts a weekday Open House for accepted students and their families in advance of the May 1 deposit deadline. The day includes a short art history lesson, studio demonstrations, a lunch to mingle with students, faculty and staff, and a chance to hear from alumni how HAS has prepared them for the future and their professional careers.

The University of Hartford also holds weekend Spring Receptions for accepted students. It’s another opportunity to get to know the Hartford Art School, and to learn how it facilitates educational and artistic needs.
