Art Degree Partnerships

There has never been a better time to be an art school graduate. There are a remarkable number of occupations that require people with artistic talents. Many of the things that lead to improving our quality of life have input from artists. The physical things in our lives—the art that inspires us, the products that we use, the things we see on our screen, the materials we read—all of these affect our sense of what it is to be a complete human being, and all of them are touched by artists. You know it…there are artists all around us. Many of them are called designers. Their influence may be invisible to the typical person, but it’s there and it’s real and it’s growing all the time.

Students in Kirtland Community College’s art programs now have some of the best opportunities to continue to further their education once they build their portfolios while attending Kirtland. Working with the College for Creative Studies (CCS) and Kendall College of Art and Design, past Kirtland Art students have won significant tuition awards at these colleges based on their portfolios in the annual student merit scholarship competitions, with some even receiving full-ride scholarships.

Kirtland art students have experienced excellent transferability of credits to both colleges. Students should contact those listed for specific program information. Students wanting additional information on the various Bachelor of Fine Art programs should contact the respective institutions at the addresses listed below.

The curriculum for each of the following programs is based upon solid studio art courses focusing on conceptual, practical, and technical skills. The major core curriculum for each is based upon traditional practices and in-depth use of technology.
