Students who are interested in an art-related vocation should initially concentrate on basic design and drawing courses (ART 102, 103, 105). These form the foundation for the advanced art courses offered at TCC. Some of the courses listed in the catalog are offered on a limited basis once a year, every other year, etc. Contact the Art Department for help in planning your program. Students who plan to transfer should check the requirements of the college or university of their choice.
In painting, drawing and sculpture courses, the human form is a subject of study. The human model, sometimes in the nude, may be incorporated into these studies. Any student enrolled in one of these courses who may object, for whatever reason, to study of the nude model may arrange for optional studies with the instructor of that course.
The college reserves the right to temporarily retain for exhibit or photographing any student work submitted for credit.
