Welcome to the Art Department

The Palomar College Art Department has one of the most comprehensive programs of study in Southern California. We offer a wide range of degree programs and have numerous transfer relationships with both the University of California and California State University systems as well as private art schools in the area.
Our goal is to ensure that you are well prepared to move forward with your education, if that is your intention, and our courses are structured to direct your learning to that end. We also recognize that many people take art courses for personal enrichment or to enhance their job skills. This blend of students helps to make our department a vital, dynamic learning environment for everyone.
