These courses are designed to meet different experience levels from beginner to advanced. Art students have the opportunity to display their work in the Michael P. Vargas Art Gallery at the annual Mission College Art Students Exhibit. Students will have guest lectures and demonstrations, and trips to major museums. We invite all students to join our classes which offer a supportive learning environment that balances fundamentals of craftsmanship with creative freedom.
