Join The Tradition!



Art courses at Chipola range from beginning drawing to sculpture. Students may take one or more art classes to satisfy graduation requirements, although many students elect to take art classes for personal enlightenment. Many community members have enrolled in art classes to learn to draw, paint, or better understand the arts. Art majors are expected to take the basic art curriculum, including Purpose of Art, two courses each of drawing, design, and painting, and one each of ceramics, crafts, sculpture, and beginning computer graphics. These courses satisfy the art major requirements at Chipola.

The Visual Arts program at Chipola is conducted in one large newly renovated multipurpose art studio. A new gallery provides exhibition experience for art majors and a secure display space for shows by guest exhibitors.

Chipola has Art Scholarships available. The Robert F. and Elizabeth Adams Staley Memorial Art Scholarship is a two-year scholarship awarded to an art major who has submitted the most promising portfolio and has an academic standing of at least a 2.0 grade point average. Preference is granted to candidates from the five county area Chipola serves. Other full and/or partial art scholarships are also available.
