About this course

The task of the visual arts is to bond imagination, experience and problem solving. At BSC, students learn how to create art that communicates ideas, thoughts and feelings. Through study of design elements and principles, students develop understanding of the visual language needed to analyze art and to apply aesthetic knowledge in a cultural context. Non-majors may benefit from visual art courses as self-enrichment. Several classes are structured so students can have continual enrollment as their skills develop.

BSC’s program has a three-fold mission:

  • Provide core curriculum for students planning to transfer to a four-year college or use art as a profession and livelihood
  • Provide an environment for students to enjoy art and to develop skills through participation in local, state and national art activities and exhibitions
  • Encourage students to make artistic contributions to their community

Study is offered in three broad categories:

  • Two-dimensional – Painting, drawing, printmaking and two-dimensional design
  • Three-dimensional – Ceramics, sculpture, three-dimensional design and jewelry
  • History - Introduction to the visual arts and art history
