LANSING COMMUNITY COLLEGE

 

CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Fine Art Foundation

Associate in Applied Arts Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0271  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

This curriculum is designed for artists who wish to expand their creative horizons or refine their artistic style.  The emphasis is on the exploration of an artist's abilities through the use of traditional materials and techniques.  Painting, drawing, printmaking, and watercolor are fine arts.  A career in fine arts requires dedication, discipline, and sacrifice.  Success can come slowly in this visual art, and most artists do their best work after years of experience.  Fine artists are self-employed professionals who sell their work through artist's representatives, galleries, art fairs, and juried exhibitions.  Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.

 

PREREQUISITES
Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section for skills assessment and advising information.
