Central Arizona College offers a robust variety of studio art classes, including several levels of painting and drawing. The college offers several fine art history courses as well.

Visual artists often use painting, sculpting or illustration, and a wide assortment of materials, to communicate ideas and feelings as images and designs. Artists' works may be realistic, impressionistic or abstract and represent a vast range of subjects.

When you begin studying art at the college or university level, you typically begin by focusing on the fundamentals of art. Most students learn about design and drawing first.

Central Arizona College goes beyond the fundamental classes with a wide offering, including ceramics at many levels, printmaking, two- and three-dimensional design, jewelry making, metal working, photography and computer-assisted graphic design. Our faculty includes several nationally recognized artists.
