Visual Arts

The Visual Arts: Art, Photography, Visual Communications

The Visual Arts Department at Edmonds Community College is a collective of the Art, Photography and Visual Communications programs. Together we build curriculum, share resources, and coordinate student activities to create a collaborative environment.

Imagine. Innovate. Inspire.

As a student within the Edmonds Community College's Visual Arts Department, you will learn to imagine through exploration, innovate through creative thinking, and inspire through visual communication to create an essential foundation for higher learning with all courses. Your instructors are experts in their fields who love to create as much as you do and work together to give you a wide variety of opportunities across the visual arts.

Take Classes When and Where You Want Them

The Visual Arts provides morning, afternoon, evening and online courses to allow access to the discipline for any student trying to fulfill a Humanities distribution requirement as well as art majors and those seeking elective credits.

Show Your work. Build Your Portfolio.

You are encouraged to take advantage of numerous opportunities to gain knowledge and information concerning art outside the classroom through field trips, visiting artists, open labs and art clubs. Professional training is also provided through an annual student art show, Between the Lines (our award-winning art and literary publication), and portfolio development.
