Tyler Junior College


The Tyler Junior College Art Department is located in Jenkins Hall. The Art facilities cover more than 10,000 square feet including three spacious labs, lecture classroom, offices, student lockers, storage and a visual resource room.

The Art Department has two exhibition spaces, the Jenkins Art Department Lobby Gallery and the Wise Auditorium Gallery. Another benefit to the TJC art student is the close proximity of the Tyler Museum of Art, which is located on campus. The TMA exhibits work from nationally known artists and provides an unparalleled educational opportunity.
