Fine Arts

The Fine Arts Certificate Program provides an introduction to the fundamentals of fine arts as a vehicle for creative self-expression. Taken together, these courses provide an overview of the concepts, language and skills of fine art practice. A strong emphasis is placed on enabling students to develop their personal artistic vision. That vision is facilitated by a close working relationship between faculty and students. This program is designed to prepare students as fine artists including painters, sculptors, and printmakers (SOC 27-1013).

The program includes the six core courses outlined below, plus two elective courses. Advisors are available to help students choose elective courses from the Continuing Education catalog.
