The Fine and Performing Arts are thriving at Mendocino College! Our AA degree programs in Art, Music, Theatre and Dance inspire students with both studio experiences and theoretical understanding of these various art forms. Mendocino College students have transferred to excellent BA arts programs and conservatories, and many have gone on to successful professional careers. At Mendocino College, however, we recognize the essential value of arts education for all people, and encourage all students to participate in the arts, whatever their professional and/or academic goals. Our impressive faculty of professional artists and inspired educators engage Mendocino College students in creative endeavors which truly nourish our community. We invite the public to experience the extraordinary work of our students through an annual season of performances and gallery exhibitions.
