HCC’s Theater Program provides students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university as theater majors the foundational skills in performance, technical aspects of theater, and audition skills necessary for them to succeed in upper division theater courses. The core courses provide basic theory and practice in the essential areas of theater noted above, as well as extensive hands-on theater experience in a variety of performance venues across varied genres of theater.
Additionally, non-majors may also participate and audition to gain experience in theater as a life-long avocation in the community.
HCC’s Visual Arts Program encourages students to exercise and develop their talents and creativity and discover new ways of seeing, hearing, thinking. Course subjects include drawing, design, painting, photography, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, and mixed media. Students are taught to refine creative thought and apply acquired knowledge and skills to the making of images, objects, and experimental works. This program is designed for students who want to transfer to a four-year fine arts degree program or go directly into creative fields such as arts education, advertising, photography, design, and more.
