What you’ll do:
Explore different areas within art and develop verbal, technical, and aesthetics skills. Art and Design courses provide you with a strong foundation of study that helps you transfer to a college or university for a bachelor’s degree. Many students take our classes to fulfill General Education requirements or for personal enrichment.

The culture among faculty and students is congenial and productive, with rigorous course work and attention to craftsmanship. One-on-one instruction from experienced faculty artists gives you a competitive edge when applying for admission and scholarships to colleges and universities.

Where you’ll go:
After completing a bachelor’s or in some cases a master’s degree, you can go on to have a career in the studio arts, graphic design, illustration, industrial design, art education (K-12 or college-level), museum work, gallery work, exhibition design, exhibit preparation, curation, art critiquing or writing, art handling, art restoration/preservation, art therapy, medical illustration, photography, furniture design, fashion design, interior design, jewelry design or textile design.
