Through classes in art appreciation, drawing, printmaking, painting and ceramics, students prepare for a deeper dive into an artistic life. Digital arts and honors courses are also available. Tri-C students participate in portfolio-building activities that prepare them to transfer to a four-year institution, or to enter the practicing art world.
In addition, Art Therapy is offered as a transfer track culminating in an Associate of Arts degree. Coursework prepares students to transfer to a bachelor's degree program in art therapy. Students who complete 12 core courses from the Art Therapy track may also earn a document referring them as an art specialist.
