Fine Arts

The Associate in Arts in Fine Arts provides students with an introduction to the discipline of the visual arts as a means of self-expression and communication.  The curriculum provides a solid foundation in a wide range of media, methods, and materials. These develop the skills and experiences that lead to transfer to a four-year institution, and eventually to a career in the visual arts.  The educated artist balances artistic and practical training with a liberalizing background of general studies, art history, and cultural trends.  The graduate with an A.A. in Fine Arts is at the beginning of an exciting and dynamic career in the visual arts.
