In completing the AFA degree in Art, students acquire training in techniques and disciplines of art-making. The department of Art provides learners with courses that develop visual knowledge, theory, creativity and self-expression. Students acquire technical, perceptual, and conceptual skills necessary for future growth. Our program corresponds to the first two years of study for a BFA at four-year institutions enabling our students to attain the necessary tools, knowledge, and critical thinking skills to transfer successfully to the institution of their choice. Students are expected to develop a portfolio with instructor guidance.
