Art Department

The Art Program offers beginning and advanced level courses for the student seeking to fulfill general education requirements, skills development, and/or cultural enrichment. General education requirements can be met through art history and art appreciation courses, as well as through hands-on studio practice in design, drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, and illustration.

Art students gain practical experience by presenting their work in campus exhibitions, as well as competitions, art festivals and workshops. The vocational skills acquired in the program additionally prepare students for professional level activities.

The Moorpark College Art Gallery maintains an active exhibition schedule, where professional artists are invited to exhibit and lecture about their work. The gallery also serves as a public face for the College. The Moorpark College Art Department faculty are practicing artists who exhibit their work both nationally and internationally.
