What Foundation Courses Should I Take First?

The Cypress College Art Department offers a variety of studio, design, and history courses and we understand that it is difficult to determine what you should take first. All of our concentrations have suggested foundation courses designed to prepare for your concentration study. The first step is to meet with our Fine Arts counselors (Renay Laguana-Ferinac and Renee Ssensalo) and a full time faculty member in your area of interest to create an official plan.
