The Visual Art Foundation Program introduces concepts of creativity using design, drawing, painting and ceramic manipulating techniques to explore the visual basics of the design elements: line, shape, space, texture, value, color and mass. This course work is a stepping stone that ensures a student will be provided the fundamental building blocks of art endeavors, enabling them to pursue a four year degree, and beyond, in the arts. Students successfully completing the Art Foundation courses with their portfolios, often receive scholarships to pursue their area of choice, while gaining entry nationwide into a four year program at a third year level. These same students have gone on as teachers, professors, interior designers, architects, graphic designers, animators, jewelers, ceramic artists, painters and sculptors, photographers. Graduates have also included arts administrators, art historians and art therapists. The fundamentals of the Visual Art Foundation provide a key to success in the arts.
