The Studio Program of De Anza’s Art Department emphasizes the teaching of strong technical skills and nurtures each individual’s originality, creativity, and artistic development.

It offers programs designed to train future artists as well as individuals who want to improve their intuitive and aesthetic skills. Areas of study include various levels and forms of drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, and graphic design/interactive design. Faculty members in the Art Department are practicing professionals whose work reflects a dedication to the development of creative and conceptual styles and abilities.

The program serves a broad range of students who wish to build on a firm foundation of fundamentals, theory, practice, and history. Traditional approaches to study are complemented by training in the use of current technologies. Interdisciplinary study also is encouraged. Each spring, students of the Studio Program show their work at the Annual Student Art Show at the Euphrat Museum of Art on the De Anza campus.

The Art History Program offers courses which meet general education requirements and are transferable to major art history programs at other colleges and universities.
