Studio Art

Through the program's art theory and art practice classes, students will develop the core foundation of classes and skills for transfer to the upper division of a four-year program. These core skills include an awareness and understanding of the materials, tools, rationale and significance of art in society. The art curricula's critical thinking and technical skills components encourage students to utilize independent thought processes and problem-solving.

Within the AA degrees, rigorous training in conceptual and technical skills will help students with career opportunities such as painters, sculptors, ceramists, art instructors, illustrators, printmakers, computer publishing specialists, commercial designers, gallery directors, graphic artists, computer artists, game designers, and many more.

The Visual Arts Dept. uses a wide range of methods to keep the programs current. Teaching modalities include the use of visual and multimedia presentations, the internet, individual critiques, group critiques, group work, and writing assignments that stress critical thinking skills. New resources, methods, and materials that are developed in the arts are brought into the classroom for students to be aware of the latest industry standards.
