Visual Arts at Central Piedmont


I love the job because it is an
opportunity for me to provide a service to serve the students and in a larger
sense to serve the community and to do something every day that that tries
to make the word a little bit of a better place. Hello I’m James
Pence, instructor of photography and art history at Central Piedmont Community
College. I’ve been a member of the visual art department here for the last 16
years. At CPCC, we offer an associate of Fine Arts degree and in our visual art
department we offer courses on drawing, design, painting, printmaking, photography, ceramics, sculpture and jewelry. Hi, I’m KC Roberge. I have been at CPCC for
two years and I am in the fine arts continuing education program. I chose
CPCC because it was affordable and it offered all the foundation art classes
that I was lacking from high school. All of the art programs here at CPCC are
fantastic. Every single room is stocked with all of the things you could need
and all the students are also very passionate about what they’re doing so
it’s a really fun and inviting environment to work in.
My ultimate goal here at CPCC was to really develop my own style of art. I had
been drawing and making art since I was a child but I never really had the
chance to discover my style of art and what was going to set me apart from all
the other artists. So here at CPCC, all the teachers have been very encouraging
about pushing you to really figure out what you want to do.
If I have one reason to recommend the visual arts at CPCC to a student, it
would be the quality of our instructors. They are highly dedicated they are
highly motivated they are exquisitely trained and educated and devote their
life and their time to the achievements of students. If someone asked me if they
should come to CPCC I would tell them definitely yes! There are so many classes
here that you can take in classes that you really want to take that are going
to help push you forward in your professional career
