General Program Info
The visual arts program is dedicated to providing degree seeking entry–level students with foundational skills in drawing and design. Intermediate study and experimentation with various additional disciplines is also encouraged: ceramics, painting, photography, and printmaking. Professional development courses augment studio practice and relay business fundamentals in support of careers in the arts.
A variety of art history courses enhances the appreciation of art and culture from the prehistoric era to the present day. Dynamic extra–curricular activities such as those orchestrated by the student–run art club “Partners In Art” present opportunities to build friendships and engage with the local art community. Students enjoy exhibiting their artwork in a state-of-the-art gallery on campus and in a prestigious district–wide exhibit. Merit scholarships partially fund tuition and are available through competition for intermediate students.
Faculty members are accomplished professionals who actively exhibit their work.
