Most passionate artists shudder at the thought of working a 9 to 5 routine desk job. Artists seek to explore, discover, and create. Through their visual media, whether it is drawing, painting, sculpting, or making pottery, artists communicate their ideas and philosophies for the entire world to see. But is it only the lucky ones who make it big by selling their work? No! Art is everywhere. So that means that artists are everywhere.

Good artists are needed in virtually every aspect of a business. Their creativity is what companies look for in an employee. Artists also create paintings and sculptures, which may be put on display in museums for all to appreciate, or purchased by businesses or private collectors.

Sheridan College boasts a thriving artistic student population. The on-campus art galleries are filled with not only student art, but art from SC alumni and faculty, as well as local and regional artists. Our Art faculty understand the students’ needs and create a comfortable and encouraging learning environment, while providing students with hands-on learning opportunities that challenge them to excel.

Courses range from Introduction to Drawing to Advanced Pottery. Students involved in the program also learn about Art History and Criticism. Associate of Arts and Science degrees and the Associate of Fine Arts Degree (pending approval) are designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution. With the knowledge and skills learned in the Art program at Sheridan College, students can transfer credits earned toward a Bachelor’s degree program, and will have the confidence in their own abilities to do so. Our students will also have the entry level skills needed for many career choices.
