Art is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. Here at SMC the arts department is one of the best. There are so many courses to choose from, such as; music, dance, photography, drama, visual arts, media arts and comprehensive arts. You only need one art credit to graduate, but the best part is you can choose more than one class to take. SMC’s art courses are a great experience and you will learn a lot and get the chance to show how creative you can be.
