Through the concept of art as a traditional path of creativity, IAIA excels at skill building, provoking thought and providing exceptional educational opportunities. IAIA is a place to embrace the past, enrich the present and create the future. To move ahead to paths yet unexplored and undiscovered. On our stunning 140 acre Santa Fe campus, the beauty of learning is enhanced by the beauty of our surroundings. As it has done for generations, the unique landscape, the dramatic light and rugged physical beauty have made Santa Fe a mecca for artists seeking to express the deepest reaches of their creativity. We are a fine arts school in a fine arts town, which adds immensely, and positively, to the atmosphere and learning possibilities.
