Northwest College of Art & Design
About Our College
The school was established in 1982. Initially it was in Lemolo in Poulsbo. In 1991 the institution, then the Northwest College of Art, began leasing the former Mains Manor in Suquamish, and in 2000 Craig Freeman, the founder of the school, bought the property. The Squamish tribe had purchased the former college building for $5.03 million on November 28, 2017, and made it into the current Chief Kitsap Building. The college, at that time, moved to Tacoma, having purchased a building there.
