In addition to an outstanding education, there are many opportunities outside the classroom offered to our aspiring artists:

Annual Student Art Sale: The Student Art Sale is open to all art students, and it occurs every year before Christmas break out in the courtyard in front of the Library. Students simply sign up for table space, show up with art to sell, and make money for themselves and for the art program!








The Visual Arts Club: The Visual Arts Club is a group dedicated to fun artistic activities while helping to build skills and provide useful resources and knowledge to become successful in the art industry. This club is available to anyone with an interest in art from the occassional doodler to the career bound artisian. The Visual Arts Club takes part in campus activities and provides services to other Valencia clubs on a volunteer basis.  Events such as minor workshops and art sales will be hosted on campus. The only requirement to become a member is a 2.0 GPA or higher and an interest in art. Meetings are currently held on Thursdays at 1:00 pm in 3-147.


Valencia's Anita S. Wooten Gallery provides changing exhibits featuring Local, National and Internationally known artists, and annual exhibits such as The Juried Student Exhibition, Selected Faculty Exhibition, and Graphics Faculty Exhibition.
