The Visual Arts Department delivers each disciplinary concentrate and an atmosphere for interdisciplinary exploration, as effectively as access to the rich intellectual resources of a key study institution. That vision of the power of art evolved into the Visual Arts Center which produced educational, cultural and financial impacts for Southwest Florida. Our courses are made for all ages and ability levels and we present a selection of each classes and workshops throughout the year in all the arts media. We are the state’s biggest institution committed exclusively to viewing, generating, and mastering about contemporary art and have been recognized as a leading arts institution for far more than 80 years. Diploma in Fine Arts was awarded to students upon the completion of 5 years of study.
