Students will choose from a variety of art courses to develop basic artistic techniques, while improving their abilities to observe, to find innovative solutions, and to express individual creativity. The certificate program focuses on both the creative process and the artistic product (a portfolio of finished artwork). Students also develop confidence with experimentation and self-expression.
