In 1875 along with the Lahore museum, the Mayo School or Art was founded. In 1958 it was revamped as National College of Arts by the government of Pakistan. The artists, designers and architects with a different vision filled the professional gaps in the society. In 1985 the institute earned the degree awarding status. The college has two campuses, the main campus is in Lahore and the second one is in Rawalpindi. The college offers a variety of disciplines for undergraduate, postgraduate, professional diploma and short courses.  Our students come from all parts of the country and from extremely diverse socio-economic backgrounds. The variety in backgrounds, identities, ideological positions and languages becomes our strength.

College has proper workshops equipped with tools and machines. The main focus of college is on Fine Arts and to train new talent in modem and traditional painting, graphic art and sculpture. NCA turns out professionals in Textile Design, Publicity Design, Product Design and Ceramics. There is a high rate of employment for its diploma-holders in a number of important organizations in the country Pakistan International Airlines, Pakistan National Council of the Arts, University Grants Commission, Security Printing Press of Pakistan, National Book Foundation, and the Department of Films and publications. Apart from the urban development authorities, its graduates are absorbed in the private sector by advertising agencies, architectural consultancies, industrial and publishing houses. Scholarships on need and merit basis are awarded from government fund, private and alumni donations. Students are honoured with awards and prizes during their studies.
