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 painting, watercolor, ceramics, sculpture, printmaking, and jewelry/art metals. In addition to courses, exposure to seminars in professional practices helps students prepare to function as visual artists. Our spacious labs provide 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. Finally, our instructors are highly trained, practicing artists who are dedicated to helping each student explore and research the visual arts and, thereby, reach his or her highest level of skill and creativity. To earn an associate degree, complete the 42 credit hour General Education Core, and 18 credit hours of general studies electives and the Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree requirements.
