Studio Arts

Fine Arts, Communication and Humanities Guided Pathway Division

The art program provides students with a comprehensive foundation in the history, theory, and practice of art. Each student acquires observational, compositional, technical, interpretative, and expressive competency through participation in an extensive range of studio art courses. Exposure to a culturally diverse art history curriculum prepares each student to analyze, assess, and discuss works of art from a variety of historical and style periods. Proficiencies are demonstrated through class projects, critiques, research papers, essays, and objective tests. Students will be prepared to transfer to a CSU and major in studio arts, and pursue a variety of art- related careers.

Program Learning Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the degree program, students will be able to:

  • Create artworks that demonstrate competency in the use of form, media, and technique.
  • Demonstrate the ability to comprehend, identify, analyze, and critique art works in terms of form, medium, style, and content.
  • Demonstrate the ability to critically communicate ideas about art by oral, visual, and/or written methods.
  • Research and analyze the historical, geographical, and chronological context of art and visual culture.
