Visual Arts

fine art

Students at Eastern Florida State College acquire strong basic skills in drawing, figure drawing, painting, pottery, design and sculpture, along with art history. Our art program focuses on traditional, fundamental, disciplines. In order for students to find their own voice and style, they need a solid foundation in classical, tough-to-learn fundamentals.

Fine art training at EFSC can lead to a gratifying career. Our graduates have the option to pursue advanced degrees or become an independent artist in their own studio, enhancing the cultural strength of the community as well.

To receive an Associate in Arts degree the student must complete a minimum of 60 semester hours of college level credit with 36 hours of that in general education courses.

For those students who are planning to major in art the first two years of study will reflect the basic foundations. To transfer to a university or college with a parallel program in art, you must maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA in all general education and art classes.

The course sequence and custom visual arts class search pages will help you explore specific requirements. Plus please feel free to visit our classes and talk with our students and faculty — welcome to the arts.

EFSC Graduate & Award-winning Artist

I am a first generation college student, who began in the dual enrollment program. The passion and love for the arts exhibited by the students and the teachers alike encouraged me beyond words. My professors honored my work in so many ways, and gave me the confidence to continue my education at UCF. Their support has gotten me through many hard times, and I wouldn't trade my experience at Eastern Florida for the world.
