The Art program is designed to challenge the creative, expressive and intellectual potential of each student. The opportunities provided help students become more sensitive to aesthetic values and become discriminating in the assessment of their visual environment. Through hands on experiences in a problem solving framework, students not only find an avenue to express personal feelings, moods and aspirations, but also to explore personal aptitudes and potential in visual expression and communication. The importance of individuality is stressed in conjunction with pride in one’s work and with respect for the efforts of others.
The Art program is designed to assist all students. Through course work a student’s awareness of art career directions is guided and stimulated toward further art education; for other students the avocational interest in art as a personal lifestyle choice is encouraged.
