The Visual Arts department offers a wide selection of courses ranging from the traditional fine arts to digital design and time-based media. Students who take our courses plan to transfer, move into the workforce, and/or continue their educational journey. Our innovative curriculum emphasizes both the technical and conceptual aspects of visual ideation. We offer a diverse range of programs and our newest course additions include Animation and Lithography... a perfect analogy to the breadth of our programming. All students are welcome.
