Art & Art History Dept.

The Los Angeles City College Visual & Media Arts Department is committed to offering an extensive program of courses for students whose goals range from a career in fine arts or graphic design to those pursuing personal enrichment. We offer the AA degree in Fine Arts and Graphic Design as well as two year programs aimed at transfer to the University of California and California State University systems. Our students may also choose private schools such as University of Southern California, Art Center College of Design, and Otis College of Art and Design, Woodbury University, and Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising.

Our faculty of working professionals teach art as both a subject and an activity. Our courses provide a foundation in visual knowledge and theory and training in the techniques of art-making. We recognize the uniqueness of the individual and encourage exploration of her/his creative talents by emphasizing art experience and potential in a diversity of cultures. The relationships among the arts are emphasized and enrollment is encouraged in other arts disciplines.
