a message from the Dean...
WELCOME TO THE Art Department at St. Louis Community College at Meramec. Our pages will introduce one of the largest and most outstanding art departments not only in the St. Louis metropolitan region, but also the State of Missouri. With nineteen full-time and nearly one hundred adjunct faculty members, we rank among the region’s largest and most diverse art departments. Our fine arts faculty are first and foremost excellent teachers who are also active practicing artists with outstanding juried gallery exhibition records. Our art department offers numerous highly respected career programs in addition to the fine arts, including Architectural Technology, Graphic Communications and Interior Design. A focal point of the department is the world-class digital imaging facility called The Center for Visual Technology. The department maintains national accreditation by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. The college offers several degree options, an AA, AFA and an AAS degree, in addition to various certificate programs in specific areas.
With national accreditation comes the ability to form articulations with many colleges and universities. These articulation agreements provide for a smooth transition from our exceptional degree programs into equally strong programs at the BFA level.
Those students having a visual orientation along with an interest in the fine arts or one of the career areas closely associated with the fine arts are in the right place. We promise to provide you with a solid fine arts foundation; one that will serve you very well regardless of the art-related career path you decide to follow. The art department at St. Louis Community College at Meramec is the place to meet your full potential as an artist. Thanks for visiting our website. We look forward to meeting you in person.
