The Associate of Arts in Art provides freshman and sophomore level courses required by most colleges for a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in the visual arts. This program is ideal for students interested in a career in the fine or applied arts. The outcomes assessment requirement for this program will be an exhibition of art completed during the student’s time in the program. This exhibition must be accompanied by an Artist’s Statement, a written explanation of the work on display.

Students must complete all program requirements, including approved electives, with a grade of “C” or better.
