(University Parallel)

The courses offered in art provide a foundation for visual arts majors who plan to transfer, after two years, to a senior college or university. The curriculum includes courses leading to the Associate in Arts degree with emphasis in the visual arts and additional courses that offer cultural growth to those living within the college area. The courses are also designed to encourage participation of non-art majors. All art majors must take the foundation courses Drawing I and Design I during their first semester, followed by Drawing II and Design II the following semester to ensure transfer of credits. These classes are also pre-requisites to other art studio courses, (3-D Design, Painting I and Painting II, Ceramics I and Ceramics II). Art majors must take the freshman level courses in sequence in order to receive proper transfer credit and must take Exhibition Class each semester enrolled as an art major at JC. Each semester art majors must enroll in art classes and submit a portfolio for jury by art faculty. Scholarships available to freshmen and returning students are usually awarded based on the quality of the student’s portfolio and are decided on an individual basis. Transfer credits to four-year institutions can be based on the quality of student work; therefore, all art majors are required to participate in juries (portfolio review) at the end of each semester. Juries are necessary for art faculty to ensure progress and to advise in the preparation of portfolios.

Program Requirements:


The following advisement plan is a recommended course of study.
