In every studio class I teach, I want the students to be able to achieve the highest of their abilities. Tomball’s small classes allow me to make this happen! We have fantastic facilities and space for students to make and develop their ideas through a variety of artistic processes. Whether it is digital art, in our updated computer lab, with an Epson 20x24 color printer, or photography in our 15 black and white enlarger wet darkroom. Whatever your studio focuses we have drawing, design, painting, photography or digital art, we have a space for you to develop and create your portfolio in our new Fine Arts AA-focused degree program. Yearly, we hold a student art exhibition.
