Objective
To better serve the current and future students of Grossmont College we need to upgrade and update the equipment and technology in the Drawing, Painting, and Design rooms: 208 and 274, and the adjacent offices: 277 and 209.

 We are proposing new curriculum, such as ART 231, Figure Drawing II, in hopes to facilitate growth in our area as the rest of the art department expands into their new buildings. We plan to develop more new curriculum in the near future.

 The upgrading of equipment and technology in these rooms and offices will help us better serve the students in an effective, safe, and more efficient manner.

 This is a priority that will need addressing as soon as funding becomes available. Priority for 200 remodels.
