What is the Visual Arts program?

The Visual Arts program includes the study of Art History, Drawing, Design, Painting, Sculpture, Digital Art, Ceramics, Printmaking, and Photography (wet lab and digital). Visual Art education is a means for the development of aesthetic sensibility and visual literacy, and allows access for visual learners to higher education.

What will I learn?

Students gain experience and develop confidence in engaging individual creative processes, making judgments that require critical thinking skills, and understanding these means of individual empowerment as a life-long developmental process. The broad range of technique and skill explorations in our classes include classical to contemporary.

What can I do with this course of study?

Visual Arts majors transfer to Universities and Schools of Art throughout Texas and the U.S. to pursue a Baccalaureate degree. The Visual Arts program offers a 60-hour Associate in Arts and transfer credit of ARTS courses. Courses are in accord with the Texas Association of Schools of Art.

What's special about our program?

The Visual Arts program at SAC was started in 1955. The Visual Arts Center opened in 1991 and houses a large gallery exhibition space, art lecture hall, and studios for 2D and 3D art classes. The gallery exhibits local, national, and international professional artists and student work. Online galleries are an archive of previous exhibits since 1996. Visiting lecturer events expose students to nationally and internationally recognized artists, art critics, and art historians.
