Studio Art offers students a foundation in the two-dimensional arts such as drawing, painting, mixed media or a hybrid of digital tools and traditional studio practices. It is a transfer path into art school or university and/or professional training for artists. Students may receive either an AA in General Studio Art and an AA-T degree in Studio Art (CSM Catalog
). Graduates from CSM's Studio Art program successfully transfer into majors such as animation, digital design, art therapy, museum studies, teaching and fine arts.
All of CSM’s studio art instructors are professional artists and recognized experts in their chosen media.
