The A.A. in Art degree at LRCC offers a choice of two concentrations: Art Education and Studio Art. They share a core of 4 classes in studio foundations and history. Both tracks offer a strong arts foundation for entry into the field and several options for transfer to four-year programs.
The Art Education track provides students with a survey of studio art courses and art education courses. Students will spend time in elementary, middle or high school art classrooms, observing and interacting with students and teachers. Upon completion of the degree students will be prepared to teach art in a private setting or to transfer to a four-year institution to complete their Bachelor’s in Art Education and earn their teaching certificate.
The Studio Art track focuses on drawing and painting and also has elective options in printmaking, ceramics, and digital media. Students will leave the program with a sense of their own creative process and a personal website to market themselves and their work to galleries, job prospects or transfer to a four-year program. With this degree a student is prepared for entry into the field or continued education.
