Art History Collective

The Art History Collective seeks to bring students from the California State University, Chico community together into an environment that allows students to engage with Art History outside of the classroom setting both on campus and in the larger local and global communities. We seek to promote discussion and engagement, and to supplement the Art History Department with professional development within the field of Art History.

Ceramics Club

The Ceramics Club brings CSUC students together with a shared interest in ceramic art.  Each year the club works to provide financial support for student travel to, and participation in ceramic conferences: the National Council on Education of Ceramic Arts and the California Conference for the Advancement of Ceramic Art . The club also organizes on-campus lectures and demonstrations presented by visiting artists which are usually free and open to the public.

Club Aesthete (Painting and Drawing Club)

Our objective is to build a strong sense of community among the painting and drawing students of Chico State; we also strive to advance our skills as artist--both aesthetically and professionally. As such, we will create events for the purpose of enhancing our skills.

DADA: Do Art Dream Art (Art Education Club)

Education is a dynamic, ever-changing field of study. This club gets art education news out to the students. Special attention is paid to clarifying information about teaching credentials, jobs and best practices in art education. We also have fund-raisers throughout the year, proceeds from which support our annual art exhibition and student travel to our statewide conference and museums.

The Sculpture Club is an extension of the sculpture area in the Department of Art and Art History at California State University, Chico.
