Allen County Community College offers an Associate of Arts in Art for students who are interested in artistry, art criticism, art collection, or other careers that involve a development of art as a career. Through this program, students will develop an understanding of the aesthetics; production, patronage, and consumption of art through a diverse curriculum which will help students develop themselves as professionals in art. Students will explore art from a variety of cultures, time periods, geographies, and other divisions in history, as well as by studying approaches in analysis and other methodologies.
The program consists of classroom courses which emphasize real-world education through examination of cases and education which will be applicable on the job. Those classes include English composition, college algebra, art appreciation, drawing, design, painting, life drawing, public speaking, digital photography, water color, music appreciation, and a variety of electives relating to the development of understanding of science, society, and art.
Upon completion of the program, students will have demonstrated their understanding of art and history and motifs of art over time.

These qualifications include but are not limited to the development of knowledge in art history, and to develop an understanding of differentiation of art by period, geography, style and other factors.
