Studio Art – Associate in Science Degree, Certificate of Achievement

Top Code: 1001.00

This curriculum is appropriate for students seeking transfer to programs that focus on the practice of fine art, or who wish to pursue professional practice as a visual artist. (Suitable transfer programs at four- year colleges, universities, or art institutes include the traditional studio arts—drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and ceramics; programs in photography and digital media that have a fine arts emphasis; and studio art programs that are not media-specific, with names such as “new genres”).

Students completing the degree program will develop a portfolio of original artwork and prepare their work for exhibition. Students pursuing a Bachelor’s degree should research the specific requirements of desired transfer institutions and meet with a counselor, as completion of this certificate program is not a guarantee of acceptance. Students are advised to meet with a full-time visual arts faculty member for suggestions of potential transfer institutions and additional curriculum specific to their needs. (Students will be advised to complete the CSU-GE-Breadth or IGETC CSU pattern.)

A Certificate of Achievement is awarded upon completion of all required courses with a grade of C or better.

Program Outcomes

  1. Demonstrate proficiency in the use of tools and materials in at least one studio arts discipline.
  2. Analyze the formal properties and social content of works of art, verbally and in writing.
  3. Create a portfolio of original art work.
