Welcome to Art Courses at Columbus State Community College. These courses are designed to offer you the basic visual language they need to start
your arts studies, or simply to allow you to appreciate art.
Our courses allow you to put art within its cultural and historical context. We do
not offer a degree in art, but many students take arts courses as a way to build up
their portfolios before going to art school. Also, our classes count as electives
toward your Associate of Arts or Associate of Sciences Degree.
Our recently renovated Drawing Studio and Design Studios provide an ideal setting
for students to hone their creativity.
Our Design Studio saw some serious design itself. The studio features vaulted ceilings,
painting stations, two cleaning stations, a light table. Large windows let in plenty
of natural light, or professionally-designed light fixtures allow us to carefully
control the view.
Our Drawing Studio is one of the top studios among community colleges in the area.
It also features vaulted ceilings, large windows and design-quality lighting. In addition,
it includes lockable storage areas for portfolios and a large stockpile of items for
composing still life images.
Students work in various mediums, creating two and three dimensional as well as time
