Visual Arts is not only about being a creative artist in the studio; it is about having choices in employment and artistic direction.

During the course of the program, students will have the opportunity to develop a wide and varied set of skills emphasizing both the technical and conceptual aspects of art, making a program graduate a versatile and flexible artist and designer in today’s world.
