Exhibit of faculty, students and alumni.

The Collin College Art Department provides students and faculty with an environment that fosters excellence in teaching, creative work and research, and a department-wide focus on student-centered learning.

Students are provided with a range of academic and professional experiences in and beyond the classroom. These activities:

  • Provide a solid foundation in the skilled use of materials, tools and techniques associated with a wide range of artistic and classroom practices.
  • Promote interest in and knowledge of key issues and processes relating to contemporary and historical art, artists and educators.
  • Engender comprehension of visual language as a means of communication.
  • Foster an understanding of the larger role that the visual arts and design play in society.
  • Enable students to explore issues of diversity, especially in terms of the art world and its cultural influences and audiences.
  • Encourage experimentation, intellectual risk-taking, and critical reading/writing/thinking.

Collin College offers a wide range of art classes in well-equipped studio labs located at the Preston Ridge Campus in Frisco and the Central Park Campus in McKinney.

The 33,000 square-foot Visual Arts Center at the Spring Creek Campus houses several state of the art studio labs as well as THE ARTS gallery, which provides a viewing and exhibition space for students, faculty and the community.
