Welcome to the New Brunswick College of Craft & Design—where art and entrepreneurship intersect. We empower learners to forge sustainable, creative careers and explore a self-defined professional path.
Fine-tune your creativity with a preparatory program that teaches drawing, colour study, creative process, art history, design, and writing for designers and makers in Foundation Visual Arts. Use your foundational skills to excel in any of our specialized diploma programs in the following year.
Don’t just learn to make art — learn to thrive as an artist. At the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design, innovation is crafted every single day. Inside our studios, faculty are forging new technologies and students are exploring new ways to design and shape their world. This is craft like you’ve never seen it before.
You belong in our small but mighty community of emerging arts professionals — backed by a faculty and alumni community more than 80 years in the making. Specialize in growing digital industries in one of our technical programs — 3D Digital Design, Graphic Design, and Photography/Videography. This is your opportunity to become an ambassador for craft at the cutting-edge.
