Art Department Philosophy
Art Department courses are designed to assist all students with the process of discovering and developing creativity in the Visual Arts. The focus is directed toward a sensitivity to the visual world while exploring personal expressions through a variety of media and creative processes. In addition to hands-on Art making experiences, the curriculum introduces students to areas of Art History, as well as the means to discuss issues involving the Visual Arts. Creating Art requires intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual alertness. The Art curriculum is designed to assist students as they explore their creative potential.
