The Fine Arts and Humanities department encourages the spirit and process of exploration and shows students how that journey is informed by social, cultural and historical contexts. Our courses combine the traditional liberal arts format with applied studio courses to promote a dynamic learning experience. As we prepare Fine Arts and Humanities majors for successful transfer to a four-year institution, we promote independent critical thinking, ethical collaboration and community engagement. The Fine Arts department engages our community and makes arts accessible to all through the production and operation of our music and theater performances, ceramic class demonstrations, art gallery exhibitions and First Friday Art Walk receptions.
Though we don’t currently offer full degree programs, we offer a wide range of courses in art, music, theater, philosophy, world religion and the humanities. Our instructors have years of experience in their respective fields and a passion for helping students explore the human condition.
