Visual ArtsIn these classes, students may develop skills in traditional art forms such as painting, drawing, and ceramics. In our Visual Communication area, students also use new media art forms that incorporate the use of computer and digital technology. Art appreciation and art history courses enrich students‘ understanding of all the visual arts and the ways in which artists explore and communicate the depths of human experience within their chosen medium. The Art Gallery in the Fine Arts Building hosts numerous shows throughout the year and is an important part of our educational programming for our art students.

Performing ArtsAreas include Music, Theatre, and Dance.
In Music, applied lessons in a variety of instruments and in voice are taught by highly qualified musicians. In addition to private instruction, students may develop performance skills by participating in Concert Band, Choir, and Jazz Ensembles. Foundation courses for musicians such as Music Theory, Sight-Singing and Ear-Training are offered as are courses in Music Technology. Many of theses classes are taught in our Music Laboratory, where student learning is enhanced through the use of computer technology. Every semester, several classes in music appreciation and music history are offered as well. These courses are available both on campus as well as online.
The Theatre area offers a wide array of courses and programming. Classes that teach students to appreciate and understand Theatre as an art form are enjoyed by many students every semester. In addition, several classes in Acting are offered in which students learn basic techniques of characterization, script analysis, auditioning, and other skills crucial to the beginning actor. The Theatre area also produces a four-production season each year. Classics, comedies, serious dramas as well as musicals are included in our programming. There is something for everyone to enjoy, and at affordable prices. Plays are presented in the intimate studio space in the Fine Arts building (Cox Theatre) and musicals are produced in the larger Performing Arts Center in the Robert Collins Center building on the east side of campus.
The Performing Arts area also includes courses in Dance Appreciation (beginning Fall 2008).
