Collin College’s Visual Arts program fosters a creative environment where you can learn the skills to become a successful artist. The Visual Arts program offers foundation-level courses in drawing, design, art appreciation and art history, as well as courses focused on traditional studio disciplines such as drawing, painting, watercolor, ceramics, sculpture, printmaking and jewelry/art metals.

Our spacious labs will provide you with access to professional-quality equipment, including printing presses, computers, printers, ceramic kilns, electric pottery wheels and a metal-casting foundry. Our gallery space, THE ARTS gallery, exposes students to the works of current professional artists and showcases student work in both open and juried student shows.

Our instructors are nationally-recognized practicing artists who are dedicated to helping you explore, research and practice the visual arts.
