Fine Arts Division

The art program provides students with a comprehensive foundation in the history, theory, and practice of art. Each student acquires observational, compositional, technical, interpretative, and expressive competency through participation in an extensive range of studio art courses. Exposure to a culturally diverse art history curriculum prepares each student to analyze, assess, and discuss works of art from a variety of historical and style periods. Proficiencies are demonstrated through class projects, critiques, research papers, essays, and objective tests. Program assessment is measured by portfolios, juried and public exhibitions, program completion, transferability and periodic program reviews. Students will be prepared to transfer and major in arts, and pursue a variety of art-related careers.
