Classes you can take at Bellevue College are seemingly never-ending. So how is one supposed to decide between English and Meteorology? Drumming and Mathematics?

That’s a good question, and one that honestly I can’t help you with. However, for those of you who don’t know quite yet what you’re looking for, you should set your sights on the Art Department to fill up those empty spaces in your registration list.

Art comes in handy for almost any profession in life. It adds to creativity and leadership, as well as confidence in yourself and your talents. There are numerous classes coming to the Art department this fall, and almost any time availability for taking one. Check out these classes for Fall Quarter; you never know, you may find a love for something you didn’t know you had until now:

ART 101: modern architecture & Design

Explore the world of design and how it co-exists with our environment in modern architecture and design. This class looks into landscaping, planning, industrial and interior designing, as well as the history of architectural designing. Five credits, ART 101 goes from 3:00 to 5:10 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

ART 105: Art Appreciation

Discovering and researching art gets you CREDITS? If you’re a lover of art in general, be it style, technique, art history, and enjoy trips to museums and galleries, I highly suggest Art Appreciation for Fall quarter. Five credits, this class goes from 3:00 to 5:10 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays.

ART 110: Two Dimensional Design

Like mathematics? The 2D design class for fall will suit you well, as the class deals with creative problem solving and designing. Be prepared for laboratory work and out-of-class assignments. Five credits, the times for this class are 8:30 to 11:20 a.m., 9:30 to 12:20 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays. 11:30 to 2:20 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, and 12:30 to 3:20 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

ART 120: Drawing 1

A beginning drawing class is a perfect place to start if you want to get back into art or have always been curious and want to learn. Focusing on perception, shading and style, Drawing 1 is exactly what it says in its title – a sketch/drawing class using pencil and charcoal to practice visual skills and lighting, as well as personal style. A full five credits, this class has time slots for nearly every time of the day and is only two days a week no matter the class.

ART 150: Basic Photo

I have no idea how to handle a camera, but I’ve always wanted to learn. In this basic photo class, students will learn how to use a camera, develop and print their photography, and use composition and effects. Start looking for a camera containing manual exposure control, film and photographic paper, if you want to take this class. Make sure you enjoy lectures – this class can last up to four hours, with a two-hour lab each week. It is worth it’s five credits however, and only two to three days a week, with four slots for fall.
