The Fine Art and Communication Design programs helps develop a student's artistic interest and strengths. As students build their portfolio, they will be encouraged to develop creativity through discovery.
Exposure to career opportunities and educational options is an integral part of the program. By the end of the fourth semester, the disciplined and self-motivated student will draw from examples of all coursework for transfer to a college, university or art school. The successful student will also develop the skills in presentation needed to pursue a career in the visual arts.
Drawings, paintings, sculptures, ceramics and photography will showcase a deeper understanding of the student's own ideas. The Individual Studio/Professional Practices course gives students the opportunity to gain a greater knowledge of the art world through visits to museums, galleries and art centers in New York City, Philadelphia and the Lehigh Valley. In addition, students will speak with curators, gallery directors, art museum personnel and a visiting professional artist who will help guide and critique their work.
