Visual and Performing Arts

Theater Student

Exploring courses or achieving an associate degree in the visual and performing arts opens you to a thriving world of culture and expression in Northern Nevada and beyond.

TMCC offers opportunities to study a variety of subjects, including visual art, dance, music, and theater.

You can take an introductory art appreciation class, or progress to intermediate art history and studio art, building your portfolio. Graphic communications offerings include graphic design, web and user interface (UI) development, and motion graphics. A new partnership with Nevada State College leads to a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Media.

There are choral and instrumental ensembles to participate in, a menu of music courses, and private lessons.

TMCC’s active and creative theater program produces about four shows each year that are open to the Reno community, giving students the chance to show off their work and talent.
