How to Use this Guide

This guide is divided into four pages corresponding with the concentrations currently offered within NECC's Art program:

  • Fine Arts
  • Multimedia
  • Photography
  • Visual Communications

Each page has resources specific to the area of degree focus, but many resources can and should be used across the concentrations, particularly as relate to the fundamentals of art and design: composition, scale, etc.
