Welcome to the Visual, Performing, and Media Arts area. We comprise three departments on the Rockville
campus—Art, Performing Arts, and Media Arts & Technologies, the arts cohort on the Germantown campus, and the Visual and Performing Arts department on the Takoma Park/Silver Spring
Through instruction and training in
a variety of formats, including lecture, demonstration, and hands-on
participation, students gain experience in art, music, dance, theatre, photography,
film, graphic design, web design, animation and gaming, and television and
radio. Associate of Art degrees and certificate programs expand employment
opportunities or prepare students for transfer to four-year institutions.
In addition to traditional academic
programs, the Visual, Performing, and Media Arts area offers multiple
enrichment opportunities for students and the community through such venues as
- Montgomery College Arts Institute provides funding for workshops, lecture/demonstrations, master
classes, musical performances, and exhibitions that support and supplement the academic programs
on all three campuses, including the Sarah Silberman Gallery on the Rockville campus, the
King Street Gallery on the Takoma Park/Silver Spring campus, the Media Arts Gallery on the Rockville campus, and open gallery spaces on the Germantown campus. These galleries present high-quality exhibits that showcase student and
faculty talent and the work of visiting artists
- Robert E.
Parilla Performing Arts Center features guest artists, films, plays
for children, student performances, and a variety of musical programs
