EGSC is a great place to begin your studies in art. Here, you'll find:

  • Great faculty, such as Desmal Purcell, a working artist who exhibits his work all over the world. Desmal is a founding member of StillmoreRoots in Swainsboro.
  • A wide selection of classes in the arts, including art history, painting, drawing, 3-D design (sculpture), 2-D design, watercolor, digital photography and ceramics.
  • Spacious facilities including a well-lit studio classroom, digital media, an outdoor patio used for creating "en plein air," Adobe CS5 programming for digital photography, professional grade photo printers, Apple computer lab, a ceramics studio, a wood-working shop, and a beautiful campus that inspires creativity.
  • Challenging opportunities to build your artistic skills in every way, from traveling to major galleries to participating in student art exhibitions and creating moving earth art on the College's Nature Trail to designing your own boomerang for the annual boomerang competition.

Where Will You Go From Here?

Perhaps you’ll follow in the footsteps of Timothy Earls, one of the leading set designers in Hollywood whose latest film is Iron Man 3 (not yet released) and has done extensive set design work on the television show, Glee; or John Dunn who is the top computer-aided designer at a local architectural firm, or the many studio artists, teachers, designers, gallery workers, and other creative professionals who got their start at East Georgia State College.

EGSC art students have transferred to complete their degrees at: Armstrong Atlantic State University, Atlanta College of Art, Georgia Southern University, Savannah College of Art and Design, University of Georgia, and Valdosta State University.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expects jobs in the creative arts to grow by 9-17% by 2014.
