Welcome to the SRJC Art Department

It is our mission to provide a foundation of introductory and intermediate level courses in art history and studio art to enable students to pursue their educational and artistic goals.  

Our primary intention is to create an environment in which critical thinking, problem solving, expression and the development of visual literacy can thrive.  Most courses in the Art Department fulfill requirements in areas like General Education, the associate degree, majors, career certificates, or preparation for transfer to a four-year college or university.  

We encourage students to explore a range of disciplines from the various areas of the department:  art history, ceramics, design, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture.
