Schedule A Visit

There’s no better way to experience Watkins then by taking a tour of the school with one of our Admissions Representatives. All of our reps are artists and understand the importance of finding the right creative environment to learn, explore and grow. Our tours last approximately 45 – 60 minutes and encompass views of each of the five departments – Fine Art, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Photography and Film. Tours of the residential apartments are offered at the end for those that are interested in on campus housing. During the tour you will learn about our foundation / studio classes, general education and the various ways Watkins prepares students to be professional artists.

Contact the Admissions Office to reserve your place on the tour:
