The Visual Arts Program guides students in a variety of media to foster artists with strong technical skill and critical thinking abilities. The visual arts curriculum is structured to develop a deeper understanding of concepts in art while building formal skills. Idea generation, process and studio habits are prioritized and integrated into all disciplines. Students are taught exhibition, art history, and discipline-specific writing that is important to the life of a working artist.
The mission of the visual arts department is to create a rigorous and encouraging environment in which students demonstrate a strong work ethic, produce quality work, and are articulate when discussing their art and the art of others.
