Painting and Drawing
The Butte College Painting and Drawing Program is designed to provide students with a solid foundation in the technical and aesthetic aspects of two-dimensional art. We are committed to teaching the importance of overall artistic competency, and providing students with direction in commercial and independent artistic futures. Our studios are designed to foster creativity, and provide students with the tools, equipment, and facilities needed to build, prepare, and create their envisioned works of art. Our instructors offer a well-rounded art education, following curriculums that incorporate art history, theory, and a multitude of painting, drawing, and design concepts. We believe in the importance of a multidisciplinary study, and offer our students the ability to install art exhibitions, critique artworks, and prepare portfolios for employment and higher education purposes.
Our program consists of course offerings on the main campus, as well as the Chico Center every semester. Classes are offered on the main campus in two classrooms (ARTS 130 & 137) and in one classroom (rm 156) at the Chico Center. We have one full time instructor, and six associate faculty members.
Future Development Strategy
The updated curriculums are aligned with the state CID guidelines creating a program that correlates to the transfering 4 year institutions that our students are attending. These redesigned courses focus on student learning and overall student success. The certificate will serve as a verification of program completion.

Current Revenue Stream
The painting and drawing area creates a small amount of revenue via paint, canvas, and art supply sales each semester. We also have peridically held 3 day painting workshops which typically generated about $1000 to $1500 each event. These workshops have not been conducted in a few years due to the colleges new insurance requirements for external non-employees. Any monies generated by these streams enters into a painting and drawing foundation account which in turn is used to subsidize materials and supplies needed for students in the classroom.
