Many studio classes may be taken up to three times for credit. The PCC Art Department welcomes degree and non-degree seeking students who are looking for the opportunity to deepen their relationship to art and connect to a vibrant creative community in order to challenge and cultivate their visual intelligence. 

Most classes contain a mixture of general education students, transfer art majors, and non-degree students, both introductory and advanced — in short a stimulating and diverse community of various ages, cultural backgrounds and skills. We feel this is the healthiest environment for creativity and art education.

Foundations Classes

PCC offers a comprehensive two-year foundation in studio art and art history. Art series classes may be taken in any sequence, but please check the PCC catalog for recommendations.
