GRCC Program:

Every artist and designer must be, to some extent, a viewer, creator, communicator, theorist, and historian. For this reason, certain subject matter areas and learning processes are common to all art/design/photography majors. Undergraduate studies in art/design should prepare students to function in a variety of artistic roles.
