The mission of the Fine Arts program is to prepare students with a studio emphasis in drawing and painting, sculpture, or printmaking for the rigor of further study and studio practice at four-year institutions of art in design. Bridging the foundational year experience, students connect their own creative expression to a solid foundation of work from observation and perception. Students will explore their technical abilities, critical awareness, knowledge of historical frameworks, and self-discipline to create a body of work that synthesizes with their own personal vision.
- To develop students’ technical skills, art historical knowledge, visual vocabulary and critical thinking abilities
- To foster individual vision, expression, and creativity
- To prepare students to transfer for further study at four-year colleges in fine arts or other areas of art and design
- Apply fine arts concepts, both current and historic; to produce well designed visual compositions
- Apply a variety of fine art processes to execute works that exhibit a strong, personal vocabulary
- Analyze their own creative thinking, critical awareness, and analytic skills to communicate and evolve visual ideas effectively
