This program is designed for students who plan to transfer to universities to earn bachelor’s degrees. Start here and save big while enjoying smaller class sizes, campus art shows and more. Our students build skills in painting, drawing, sculpture and more. They gain experience through visiting and participating in art exhibits in the community, state and nation. Some of our students have had their work exhibited in Europe through collaborations developed by Owensboro Sister Cities and Regions Program. Many students are part of the OCTC Art Club, an active student group that supports the arts on campus and in the community.
