Fine Arts Studies

The Fine Arts degree provides students who may not be interested in transferring to a baccalaureate program, with a solid foundation in the visual arts. Strong emphasis is given to the development of artistic skills and production of various types of 2 and 3 dimensional, digital and traditional fine art, while building a strong foundation in art history, reading and writing. Students will explore a variety of fine arts production methods and studio techniques. Upon graduation, students will have developed a portfolio and the skills to display at the professional level; this may lead them to exhibition opportunities or to an entry-level position in the field of art. 

For information, contact area coordinator, Dr. Augustine Nigro, at (609)343-5022 or anigro@atlantic.edu.

 

Upon completion of this program students will be able to:

  • Apply studio practices in 2 and 3 dimensional media;
  • Demonstrate proficiency in manual and digital skills;
  • Apply basic design skills to original works of art;
  • Analyze in speech, reading and writing, works of art, including one’s own, using terminology appropriate to form, function, and principles and elements of art;
  • Prepare and promote art for portfolio, exhibition, employment, and/or transfer.
