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