The Fine Art program at the College of the Siskiyous offers students a complete lower division transfer curriculum in Art, as well as a wide selection of courses for the Associate Degree major in Art.

Foundation courses such as Art History, Painting, Ceramics, Drawing and Photography rely heavily on a historical component, which not only fulfills much of the general education transfer requirements in humanities, but will also allow students to critically examine, appreciate, and relate their own artwork to a historical perspective.

Studio classes in Art provide students the opportunity to use the latest technology, facilities and equipment. The curriculum also prepares students to transfer to a four-year university to complete a baccalaureate degree in a related discipline.
