Art and design have permeated human experience for thousands of years. The fine artist
and the designer both require knowledge of the same visual principles. An art major
is trained in visual perception, design principles and manual skills necessary for personal
expression or a commercial career in various art media.
The graduate of the AA program in art will:
Participate in a variety of visual arts through the application of developed skills
in visual perception, analysis, design principles and technical abilities and demonstrate
these in a portfolio work.

"I love interacting with my students and helping them discover their appreciation for architecture and design. I enjoy giving them an opportunity for hands-on learning in our new design studio classes where they imagine ways to use their visions to improve the community. I have been an instructor at Allan Hancock College for more than a decade and I am still amazed, almost daily, how much my students also teach me."
