Designed to provide students with a broad visual arts education and for the major who wishes to transfer to a four-year college or university. Coursework focuses on both form and content while developing the student’s technical skills, aesthetic awareness, personal expression, and critical analysis. In addition, the curriculum encourages the student’s perceptual and conceptual abilities in the context of art history and society. Most universities require students to present a portfolio for evaluation to be admitted; therefore, students should keep a portfolio of their work from Southwestern College.
