ARC Fine Art Department
Art History
ARC’s Art History courses transfer to the UC and CSU systems. They also fulfill humanities requirements for a general education degree. Each Art History course is 3 hours per week, 3 units and doesn’t require any art making. If humans did it, there’s an artwork about it. So the real subject matter of Art History is the history of human endeavor itself…with some nudity.
