We offer a strong foundation program in studio arts that prepares students for transfer to a four-year art program while also encouraging personal artistic development among community members and non-majors. Core courses leading to an AA Degree in Studio Arts with an emphasis in Painting include Fundamentals of Drawing, Color and Composition, Three-Dimensional Design, World Art History Survey, Painting 1&2 (oil, acrylic & watercolor), Life Drawing and Portrait Painting. Students also have the opportunity to pursue elective courses in Photography, Computer Graphics, Photoshop, Printmaking, Arts and Crafts Marketing, and Art Gallery Management. The Studio Art program strives to serve all of Mendocino and Lake County and offers classes in Lakeport, Willits, Fort Bragg and at our main campus in Ukiah.
