Studio Art AA

Transfer Degree Description

Do you spend your spare time doodling, taking photos, or making collages? Do you dream of becoming a professional artist? Grow your passion for creating art into a career with a degree in Studio Art. This program will allow you to explore different visual art mediums, including painting, sculpting, photography, graphic design, and digital art. You’ll develop your technique as you learn more about the use of color, space, line, and form. This program can be a path to self-employment as an independent artist who creates pieces on commission or a job at an art school, gallery, commercial art studio, or production company.

An associate program in Studio Art is a strong foundation for a career as an art director, graphic designer, animator, or gallery owner. This degree is transferable to universities offering a bachelor’s degree in Art, Studio Art, Fine Arts, and Art and Design.

Students should work closely with their advisor and contact their transfer institution choices for more specific transfer information.
