Studio Arts
An Advisement Sequence in the Liberal Arts and Sciences A.A. Transfer Program

This curriculum teaches students the fundamental concepts, principles and techniques related to drawing, painting and sculpture while also providing a strong liberal arts and humanities background.

Working closely with the program advisor and art faculty, students build a portfolio of art work that exhibits proficiency in the studio arts. It will be reviewed by the program advisor prior to graduation. This portfolio can be used for either transfer or career purposes.

Students in the Studio Arts curriculum should work closely with their faculty advisor to choose electives and determine the specific requirements of transfer institutions offering programs in the studio arts.
