Course work provides knowledge, interest and understanding of art as a primary form of visual communication.

 The Art Department and Gallery, located in the Robert A. Peck Arts Center at Central Wyoming College, is incredibly unique and versatile. Central is the only community college in the state with a bronze foundry and cold/warm glass medium. Students can try their hand at welding, wood and stone carving while creating unique pieces of artwork. Ceramics students create functional and sculptural pieces using reduction, Raku, and pitfire techniques. Photography students have access to an excellent darkroom, printmaking and multimedia center. Drawing and painting students have access to a large, open air natural light studio.

 The AA program in Art is designed to let the student develop a creative attitude toward presenting and interpreting valid art forms.
