Fine Arts Institute

Welcome to the Fine Arts Institute at the University of Kentucky.

Due to mounting concerns over the coronavirus pandemic, the College of Fine Arts has canceled all of the Fine Arts Institute classes including the upcoming Summer sessions.

Details on refunds and/or credits for those who already registered are still being finalized. You will be contacted shortly. If you would like updates on future classes, please contact Carey Gough to be added to our e-newsletter.

Your wellbeing is in our hearts and we hope to be back serving artistic learning very soon. Take care of yourselves and please be in touch, even if it is just to say hi. If you have any questions please contact our FAI administrator Carey Gough at

At the Fine Arts Institute, we open our doors to our local artistic community as a place to learn anew or expand on existing creative skills. Our classes and workshops are open to the public, those 18 years and older. Our goal is to provide community learning opportunities that utilize the university’s state-of-the-art facilities. From woodworking, metalworking, ceramics, textiles, digital art, and more, the FAI wants you to push your creative boundaries in our creative setting. All experience levels are welcome.

Please look at our current list of classes for more information.

The Spring 2020 registration is now open. Classes begin in February.

Please direct your Fine Arts Institute inquiries to our coordinator, Carey Gough.
