Associate of Art Transfer in Fine Art.

View the Online Catalog.

This concentration is for students with an interest in art, intending to transfer to a four-year institution to complete a BA or BFA degree in studio art, art history or art education. Fine Art Transfer students are provided with the necessary fundamental art courses and prepared for further creative study with courses in painting, printmaking, ceramics and sculpture.

Our facilities include the Walter E. Terhune Gallery which features a student exhibition each year, as well as exhibits by nationally recognized artists. All of our studio faculty are working, exhibiting artists with master's in fine arts degrees. Our painting, drawing, printmaking, design, sculpture, and ceramics classes are approved for transfer by the Ohio Board of Regents Transfer Assurance Guide.

Students may also participate in a wide range of activities outside of the classroom. The Owens Art Club meets regularly to attend gallery openings, as well as visit museums and artist's studios. The club also holds fund-raising events to support special activities such as weekend trips to New York or Chicago. Our Visiting Lecture Series provides students the opportunity to meet prominent artists who present their work and talk about their life as an active artist. Students also have the opportunity to attend workshops that allow them to gain experience with specific techniques and materials not always covered in the classroom.
