Fine Arts A2B MassTransfer

Program Goals Statement

This program provides a strong foundation in art to prepare students for transfer into senior institutions and a career in the visual arts. Students work within a structured curriculum that emphasizes visual perception, technical skills, and an artistic philosophy geared toward individual success. Following a common one-year foundation program, students choose advanced courses to focus on their individual goals and build a strong portfolio.

Program Information

  • The Art program has approximately 180 students and 20 dedicated faculty of working artists and designers. The program offers a strong individual support system for students. 
  • Some studio art courses are offered only one semester per year. It is recommended that students take developmental courses, science, and math in the summer.
