Programs of Study
The Art program at South Plains College offers the first two years of a college education in studio art, commercial art, art education, and art history. Completion of the program leads to an Associate of Arts degree.For non-art majors, the program offers courses that satisfy the degree requirements for other fields of study. Art courses are also open to persons who are interested in art but are not pursuing an academic degree.
The Art curriculum stresses a fundamental approach to art instruction. Classes are small and students receive individual attention from accomplished faculty. Students majoring in art undertake rigorous training in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional design, drawing, and art history. Elective courses may be taken in life drawing, painting, watercolor,ceramics, and photography. The program also offers courses for non-art majors in art appreciation and art foundations.
