This foundation serves students well as they transfer to four-year colleges or professional art schools and also forms the basis of the Interior Design degree. Photography is another strong component of the Art Department, with its full-time instructor and well-equipped photo lab for hands-on learning with both black-and-white and color. Classes in architecture, painting and ceramics round out the department’s offerings for both personal enrichment and transfer students
The Art Department serves the students and the community by advancing awareness, understanding and technical skills in the visual language of art and design.
