Visual Fine Arts Department

Welcome! The Visual Fine Arts associate degree program offers students a high quality and affordable transfer-oriented course of study in the areas of ceramics, drawing, figure drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture. For students with an interest in photography, a Photography Option is available that prepares students to transfer or for an entry-level photography position. The hallmark of both programs is the emphasis on developing a strong portfolio of work to use in transferring to an art school, a four-year college or university or as part of the job search process. Twice a year, the college showcases student art work in the on-campus Hans Weiss Newpsace Gallery.

Students who are thinking of transferring are encouraged to meet with their academic advisors to discuss how MCC courses transfer to other institutions. More information on the transfer options available at MCC can be found in the Transfer Services portion of the web site.

The courses in the Visual Fine Arts and Photography programs also serve an ever-expanding population of students seeking personal enjoyment in the creative process. For these students, the courses can be used to satisfy their general education core requirements or various associate degree program requirements.
