Fine Arts

Welcome to the Fine Arts Department, whether you are a potential or returning student we hope you will reach out to us with any questions you might have. Our department offers numerous fields of study in the performing and visual arts.

The Fine Arts Department composed of animation, art, dance, drama, film/video, graphics, multimedia, music, theater (PCPA), photography, sound technology and website design offer programs that are both vocational and academic. A.A., A.S., transfer degrees and certificate programs are available.

The arts are alive and well here at Allan Hancock College where we see the department as the epicenter for creative investigation and opportunities from Santa Ynez to Santa Maria and Lompoc to Cuyama. A look at the curriculum reveals that students take a variety of classes to fulfill their General Education requirements, thoroughly preparing you for study in a selected discipline.

It is with great anticipation that we look forward to a new 88,000 square-foot, two-story fine arts complex. It will include visual and performing arts as well as a recital hall. In the planning stages for over twenty years, it promises to be a jewel on the Central Coast.

Please browse our website and take a tour of the department to learn more about our wonderful faculty and students.
