The Northern Wyoming Community College District has introduced a new visual arts certificate program at Sheridan College.

Approved last week by the Wyoming Community College Commission, the 15-hour program was announced at the college district’s meeting earlier this week by District President Dr. Walt Tribley.

He said those who enroll in the program will gain both knowledge and practice in drawing, digital media, woodworking and foundations of two-dimensional and three-dimensional art.

Dr. Tribley said the program can benefit not only students working toward an art degree but other fields as well.

As an example, he said, some K-12 teachers, even if they don’t specifically teach art, use the creative arts in their lessons.

The Certificate of Visual Arts can be an addition to an associate degree or provide a path to K-12 art certification or other advanced degrees or can stand alone for a student who wants to diversify, practice and experience variance art techniques.

According to a news release from the district, students who complete the program will be able to demonstrate a professional level of craftsmanship and technical ability in working with a range of two-dimensional and three-dimensional materials.

Those interested in enrolling in the program can apply at or contact David Brock by phone at (307) 675-0232 or email
