Studio Art offers students a solid foundation in the two-dimensional arts such as drawing, painting, design and color. CSM's 2D Art program is recognized as a leader in figure drawing, which is the core study for animators. 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 or an AA-T degree in Studio Art (CSM Catalog). Graduates from CSM's Studio Art program successfully transfer into majors such as fine art, animation, design, art therapy, museum studies, and teaching and/or become exhibiting artists.

All of CSM’s studio art instructors are professional artists and recognized experts in their chosen media.

Featured Courses: ART 201 Drawing and Composition I & ART 202 Drawing and Composition II
Art 201 is the entry course for all students starting art studies. Students learn observational drawing through a variety of media such as charcoal, conte, graphite and ink. Art 202 expands upon skills learned in Art 201 with a special emphasis on technique and personal expression.
