Fine Arts Overview

Associate in Fine Arts Degree

Anticipating the needs and desires of Western North Carolina's arts, crafts, and design community, A-B Tech introduced its Associate in Fine Arts Program in 2003. Students who satisfy the courses required in the A.F.A. curriculum and additional General Education courses will be eligible for admission into a university B.F.A. program, pending portfolio review, as a junior.

The program, specializing in visual art, gives students the chance to showcase their talents. Students in the Visual Art track have an opportunity to participate in an annual student art show where they can exhibit in a local gallery.

“The studio classes are small, enabling students to have lots of one on one time with instructors,” Sharon Trammel, Chair, Department of Fine and Performing Arts, said. “Instructors in the Fine Arts department not only have masters degrees in their fields, but many years of professional experience in the field.”
