Liberal Arts: Fine Arts option (A.A.)


This program provides a focus on the basic principles of visual design and concepts as explored primarily through Design, Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, and Sculpture.  Courses in Digital Photography and other studio areas are also offered.  The requirements of Art History and other liberal arts courses support the student in developing a comprehensive view of the human experience.  The program transfers well to a four-year institution.  It is recommended that students confer with a transfer counselor early on in their experience at Asnuntuck.
