Art Option, General Studies A.A.

The Art Option prepares students to transfer into a bachelor's degree program in fine or digital/graphic arts. The program introduces students to the theories, history and practices associated with the visual arts through its foundation courses and stresses critical thinking and a commitment to the highest ethical and professional standards. The program allows students to concentrate in the areas of traditional studio media and/or digital/graphics media. A primary goal of the program is to develop students' understanding and appreciation of how art impacts and enriches their everyday lives. As a result, both art and non-art majors benefit from the professional art instruction and creative learning environment provided in the studio courses. Prior art experience is not necessary. Note: Transferability: The students should become familiar with the program requirements of the transfer institution.
