Visual Arts

“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way--things I had no words for.” Georgia O'Keeffe

The Midland College Arts Department offers a wide range of classes. We have something for everyone, from students just starting out in pursuit of an art degree to more experienced artists looking to expand their skills.

We even have classes that would be perfect for those with no art experience, and students from other areas of study hoping to add some creativity to their lives.
