The Visual and Performing Arts Department is a vital and creative component of Whatcom Community College. The department includes the following disciplines: Art History, Dance, Drama, Fine Arts, Visual Communications, and Music. Through studio, performance and academic course offerings, our objective is to fulfill the needs of majors in visual and performing arts, and students pursuing their Associate in Arts and Sciences transfer degree. Under the aegis of the Visual Arts, we offer a professional/technical program in Visual Communications, and a foundations curriculum that serves both visual communications majors and fine art transfer students.
