About Nossi

If People Say You're
Different, Welcome Home.

Nossi College of Art & Design was started by an artist, Ms. Nossi, and for nearly half a century, it has been where future artists in Nashville have found a home.

A College Built Around Your Imagination

At Nossi you can let your creative mind run wild as you train for your career in an awesome field like photography, graphic design, illustration, video and film, or culinary arts. Step onto our campus and it won’t take long to see why our students say, “I’m different. I’m Nossi.”

Nossi is the only college in Tennessee designed specifically as an art school. Our new modern campus took three full years from idea to completion because we wanted to get everything just right. Our design and editing labs mimic pro-level labs and are equipped with industry-standard software and tech, and we boast one of the largest instructional photography studios in the region. If there’s a campus better designed to encourage creativity, we haven’t seen it.

If the Talent Is in You, We'll Bring it Out.

When Nossi students graduate, they’re ready to take on the world. Our instructors are professionals in Nashville’s creative community and together have over 1,000 years of professional experience. You’ll leave here skilled in professional-grade technology and equipped with real-world experience, as well as a portfolio full of finished work to prove yourself to employers.

All-Access Plugs You In.

Nossi’s All Access plugs you into Nashville’s creative scene, giving students the chance to work on actual projects for real clients. With All Access, your classroom might be a concert venue, a fashion show, a production studio, a print shop or a music festival. Our students get insider access to these local events, and work with real creative professionals to design promotional materials and build a portfolio filled with awesome work.


Everyone’s schedule is different. To cater to your busy life, Nossi College of Art and Design designed three enrollment dates during the year plus limited online gen ed courses. Fridays are free days open for study assistance, homework, student groups, or studio time.
