Art Clubs

The Art Department has a variety of clubs that students can get involved in, no matter what their focus is.

Joining an art club can help connect you to other student artists and artists in the greater Sacramento community, and is a great way to get involved in events and exhibitions and gain valuable new experiences.

Art History Club

The Art History Club at Sac State strives to build a community of artists, historians, educators, and students of all disciplines. We hope to create opportunities for students to have an outreach into the Sacramento art community through a variety of events such as films, second Saturday events and museum visits.

Community-focused Groups


The FORM art club was formed with the goal of connecting art students and enthusiasts with opportunities to exhibit work and learn about art events in the Sacramento area. The club is open to anyone, and encourages all who like art to join. There are no weekly, or monthly, meetings. Instead, communication is primarily through a weekly email and Facebook, in addition to hosting campus wide events - such as artist lectures and exhibition receptions - which act as replacements for meetings. The easiest way is to contact club officers is by email. New members are accepted year-round. Faculty advisor: Ian Harvey
