Description

The mission of the Fine Arts Program at Monroe Community College is to prepare students for transfer to four-year institutions, where degree programs are available that provide entry into a variety of art related professions.
It is the goal of the Fine Arts degree program to provide students with the fundamental skills and concepts necessary for a solid foundation in the visual arts. We believe that the core curriculum that we have structured will offer students the opportunity to become proficient in a variety of studio art procedures and practices. Courses in drawing, two-dimensional design, painting, figure drawing, three-dimensional design, art history and sculpture are coupled with a strong liberal arts curriculum, so students will be well prepared for advanced coursework in their chosen disciplines.
