The art department at JJC offers students the opportunity to learn both the foundation courses of visual art and art history, as well as enroll in media-specific courses, including painting, figure drawing, ceramics, jewelry making and metalsmithing, graphic design, computer art, and photography. This program will prepare students to create a portfolio allowing them to transfer to a four year university art program.

The art department is also home to the Laura A. Sprague Art Gallery, a space for both student and community shows. Additionally, the gallery offers students the chance to participate in the Joliet Junior College Art Students Juried Exhibition.

For more information contact Betty Zacate by calling (815) 280-2615 or emailing, or visit her office in C-1054, Main Campus.
