Fine Art

Studio Arts

Rooted in critically engaged studio practice, Napa Valley College's fine art program focuses on creating an environment in which critical thinking, problem solving, expression and the development of visual literacy can thrive.

The second story of the Art Center on the Napa Valley College main campus houses the Fine Arts program, offering classes in drawing, painting, printmaking, mixed media and two dimensional design. Our faculty teaches solid skills and critical thinking so that students can go on to create personally meaningful work that represents their own voice.

Students can pursue an AA or certificate in art or prepare for transfer to a college, university or art school.
