    CCC is committed to enabling workplace & lifelong learning by focusing on student success and quality in all of its practices. Programs offered include options in agricultural science, arts & communication, business & management, engineering, human services, health sciences, math & social sciences.

    The Art Program offers a comprehensive range of foundational courses in design, drawing, ceramics, glass, painting, film photography, printmaking, sculpture, and art history. These courses teach hands-on, medium-specific techniques, while emphasizing strong design skills, practical methods of developing ideas, teamwork, and craftsmanship. Our art history courses teach not only formal and historical approaches to the visual arts, but also the role of art in constructing social systems. All of our courses emphasize visual literacy, a necessary tool to navigate our increasingly complex visual world and encourage recognition of diversity through social and cultural literacy.
