MCCC’s Fine Arts Program provides the foundational studies and studio expertise that parallels the first two years of study at a four-year college and enables students to develop their skills and produce a portfolio in the visual arts to obtain employment after earning an Associate of Fine Arts degree. The program offers courses in animation, ceramics, drawing, fashion design, graphic design, illustration, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture. Many graduates transfer to prestigious art schools, including the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Moore College of Art & Design, Tyler School of Art and the University of the Arts, among others.
