The All for Art exhibit, a collaborative effort by the Blaine Arts Council and ARCC, will remain on display through May 30 at Blaine City Hall Blaine City Hall (10801 Town Square Drive N.E., Blaine) during regular business hours.
Students in the exhibit are pursuing an associate in fine arts (A.F.A.) degree, which was initiated two years ago at ARCC. The A.F.A. program was developed to prepare burgeoning artists for professional success. In addition to a challenging curriculum of art courses, the ARCC Art Department also promotes the idea of exhibitions as being an important ingredient for creating a professional artist. Currently, there are more than 80 declared A.F.A. students at ARCC and most decide to further their art educations in colleges throughout the country.
