Visual Arts

Drawing class in progress

The Visual Arts program at Weatherford College offers the prerequisite courses for a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Courses include Art History, Art Appreciation, Drawing 1 and 2; both two-dimensional and three-dimensional Design; and Painting 1 and 2. Students have an opportunity to test their skills, learn new media, and participate in a relaxed learning environment.

The Weatherford College Fine Arts Department prides itself in the fact that students from all age groups, geographic backgrounds, and levels of learning, are involved in the program. Some are attending in-route to a 4-year degree program and others are attending for personal enrichment,
but each student finds a place in our program.

Students in the program exhibit class work each semester in the Semi-Annual Student Art Exhibition held in Texas Hall of the Majorie Alkek Fine Arts building. The public is invited, and students have the opportunity to sell their work at the event.
