could you also consider "a variety of artworks to create a pleasant learning environment" a NP?

My take on it is that "to create a pleasant learning environment" complements "decorated", not "artworks" or "variety", so no.  "[W]ith a variety of artworks" and "to create a pleasant learning environment" are adverbials, and "a variety of artworks", by itself, is an NP headed by "variety" and acting as the object of "with".
