Students entering the arts or entertainment industry must be able to navigate a world of rapidly changing technology and business practices. It is often no longer practical for a student to limit their studies to just one area of the arts, but rather a broad spectrum approach is needed. Citrus College’s Visual and Performing Arts faculty believe segregating the arts into separate genres only tends to limit creativity, collaboration and our ability to reach new audiences. To survive and prosper, students must embrace technology, new themes and envision new methods of delivery to actively engage audiences.
Citrus College’s Visual and Performing Arts programs have created the perfect environment to develop the collaborative artist. Our dedicated faculty have created programs and curriculum that are specifically designed to be interdisciplinary and highly interactive. Our Career and Technology Education (CTE) programs prepare you to directly enter the professional world while our academic pathways guarantee that you will be highly competitive as a transfer student. - John Vaughan (Dean of Visual & Performing Arts
There was a dream I had for as long as I could remember - to work with Sting. And while it might be nice to think about meeting your favorite musical idol, that isn't the feeling I am talking about. I KNEW in my very being that I would work with him. Thinking it was just a matter of time and circumstance, I put that dream aside and focused on Broadway.
