The North Oregon Coast is a beautiful place to live, and this beauty is reflected in our thriving arts community. At Clatsop Community College, students study with accomplished artists and can display their works in art shows throughout the community and in our CCC gallery.

Building from the basic principles of good design, students can pursue more advanced studies in:

  • Drawing
  • Ceramics
  • Printmaking
  • Computer Graphics
  • Photography
  • Painting
  • Sculpture
  • Watercolor

Students can build a customized Associates of General Studies (AGS) focused on art, or they can begin a four-year degree in art or design with an art-focused Associate of Arts, Oregon Transfer (AAOT) degree. Many Clatsop Community College art classes transfer to other Oregon colleges and universities, and your advisor can help plan your path.
