NCC's Fine Art program helps develop a student's artistic interest and strengths. As students build their portfolio, they will be encouraged to develop creativity through discovery. Exposure to career opportunities and educational options is an integral part of the program. By the end of the fourth semester, the disciplined and self-motivated student will draw from examples of all coursework for transfer to a college, university or art school. The successful student will also develop the skills in presentation needed to pursue a career in the visual arts.
Drawings, paintings, sculptures, ceramics and photography will showcase a deeper understanding of the student's own ideas. The Individual Studio/Professional Practices course gives students the opportunity to gain a greater knowledge of the art world through visits to museums, galleries and art centers in New York City, Philadelphia and the Lehigh Valley. In addition, students will speak with curators, gallery directors, art museum personnel and a visiting professional artist from New York who will help guide and critique their work.
NCC's Fowler Family Southside Center plays host to multiple exhibits throughout the year that showcase the paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photography, mixed media, conceptual art, film and computer-generated new media by artists from NCC. The Art faulty at NCC hold exhibitions in Communications Hall with open receptions to give students a chance to see their work and to talk to them about it.
Applicants to the program are required to submit a portfolio or pass an art test as part of the admission requirements.
