Art Department Mission Statement

Through practice, study and research in a variety of disciplines, the Art Department fosters an appreciation of the transformative nature of art both personally and culturally. Studio and lecture courses in the visual arts and art history integrate intellectually informed, hands-on instruction with elements of creative freedom, independent thought, and critical insight.

Providing strong faculty mentorship in both traditional and contemporary methods, the Department encourages individuality and ingenuity in every student. The broader based curriculum and the rigor of concentration in a specific discipline equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary to flourish beyond the undergraduate experience.
