Three Rivers Community College is proud to present the “Three Rivers Visual Fine Arts Graduate Exhibition,” featuring the work of 2020 graduating students. The artists graduated in May 2020 with a Visual Fine Arts, A.A.  The degree provides a strong foundation in the visual arts and a broad background in general education. As a transfer-oriented course of study, it often leads to enrollment in an art school or other baccalaureate institution.

Hoda Awad

Some call it a mid-life crisis, I call it mid-life awareness. At some point in my life, I felt the need to reconsider what to do with the rest of my life. I wanted a career that lasts and is enjoyable. Going back to school to learn the fundamentals of painting and drawing gave me the courage to share my work with others. I am grateful for everyone who helped me build my self confidence; my daughter for telling me its better late than never, my professors’ knowledge and patience, and for my fellow classmates’ positive feedback and helpful discussion.
