Performing and Fine Arts Month: encourages program and students

El Camino’s Performing and Fine Arts Month will kickoff on Tuesday, March 19 and run through Thursday, April 18 where there will be multiple events and panels devoted to music, dance, arts, photography, film, theatre and more.

EC has invited representatives from universities such as UCLA, CSULB, Otis College and CalArts to introduce new opportunities to students and promote continuing their education at a university, and also encourage other prospective students to join the Fine Arts Division.

For students already in the Fine Arts Division, the road to earning a degree and/or transferring to a university can be more extensive than the admission requirements for other majors.

Often, students in this division are expected to have portfolios, reels, music and writing samples.

The Art Panel on Thursday, April 18 will be followed by a portfolio review where representatives from these colleges will offer advice and constructive tips to add to students’ work and portfolios and also help prepare them to transfer to a university.
