Visual Fine Arts: Photography Option

The Visual Fine Arts: Photography Option at Tunxis Community College provides an introduction to the fundamentals of photography. Our accomplished faculty offers guidance and mentoring in photographic technique, concepts, and aesthetics. The program culminates in the creation of a portfolio which, upon completion of the degree can be used towards transfer into a four year photography program or as a credential in the job search process.
