The two-year AAS curriculum provides a strong foundation in Fine Arts, focusing on the basics of:
- fundamentals of 2D and 3D design
- life drawing and general drawing
- representational and abstract painting
In the last semester of the AAS program, students have the opportunity to study abroad in the rich cultural and historical setting of Florence, Italy.
Many students go on to the BFA program for more advanced study, to further develop their conceptual thinking and individual voice. The curriculum includes a last-semester thesis project in sculpture or painting and an internship in a museum, art restoration company, or other art-related setting.
