The Art Department at Gaston College provides students of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds the opportunity to strengthen their communication skills, develop their aesthetic and artistic awareness, and foster critical thinking.

We offer a range of quality courses in well-equipped classrooms: Two Dimensional and Three Dimensional Design, Drawing, Painting, Ceramics, Sculpture, Digital Photography, Printmaking, Art History, and Art Appreciation as well as a range of online course options.

The AFA in Visual Arts prepares our students for the transition to a four-year college/university degree in such fields as Fine Arts, Art Education and Art History.

Whether you plan to major in Art or are simply seeking personal enrichment, the Art Department at Gaston College is a great place to begin!
