Division of Art
Take advantage of a tremendous opportunity to showcase your works in our campus and downtown art galleries as a Fine Art or Graphic Design major at York College. You’ll be taught by caring professors who will be producing their own artwork for faculty exhibitions. Nationally-renowned artists are regulars on campus. You’ll see them in action creating captivating art installations in the York College Galleries.
You’ll also get instruction on design theory, discuss criticism of art, and get a background in history so that when you are creating, you’re doing it with perspective and context. We strongly believe that better prepares you for a career in the arts — we approach art as a profession. By the time you graduate, you’ll have created self-promotional materials, a resume, an artist statement, and a professional body of work. Our vibrant AIGA (American Institute for the Graphic Arts) student group and juried student exhibits enhance your experience. Our selective program requires an application and portfolio submission. Take the first step to pursuing your dreams of a career in art.
