CERT Studio Art

The Studio Art Certificate program enables students to concentrate on specific areas of study within this field. Students are required to take both academic and studio art classes to fulfill the certificate requirements.

Like the Associate of Arts in Studio Art, courses and course sequences are designed to encourage the student’s power of observation and aesthetic awareness. Simultaneously students are taught technique and craft to use these powers creatively.
