The A.A. Degree in Studio Art focuses on both the meaning and form of art. By actively creating works of art in a wide range of disciplines, including drawing, painting, photography, digital graphics, printmaking, sculpture and ceramics, the student develops the techniques, visual sensibility, and historical understanding necessary for developing a personal artistic vision. An emphasis on portfolio presentation and exhibition preparedness along with a wide selection of intermediate courses in each discipline equips students with the knowledge and skills required for vocational opportunities and for successful junior level transfer to universities, colleges, and art academies.
The Visual Arts Department offers full and partial scholarships to art majors promising to enroll in at least 6 hours in the fall/spring semester. These scholarships are based on merit, scholastic achievement, artistic potential and financial need
