Mission Statement

To cultivate the creation and appreciation of visual art, we foster creative confidence, critical thinking, interdisciplinary collaboration, and cultural responsibility. We follow these principles to accomplish our mission: 

  • Visual Literacy 

We encourage the development of strong visual literacy among students of the visual arts. We support the study of history, culture, technology and trends to this end.

  • Professional Excellence 

In preparing visual art students for careers in a broad market, we support and expect excellence and professionalism.

  • Creative Diversity

While teaching techniques, styles, and practices is an important part of our programs, we support a diversity of styles and individual expressions among students in their creative work. We promote artistic freedom and seek to preserve cultural identity through creative production, exhibition, and historical research.
