The Fine Arts Department provides a rigorous conservatory experience in art education. During the first two years, traditional skills and disciplines are stressed through our foundation level courses which are required by all art majors regardless of what year they enter LaGuardia. This program is based in fine art and prepares students for post-secondary education and twenty-first century careers in the arts related industries.
Students are grouped heterogeneously. Within each class, the range of abilities, both academic and artistic, is accommodated through individual and small group instruction.
