    Art Department Philosophy: 
     
    The Visual Arts are an integral component of a well-rounded education. As a form of communication found within all cultures, the arts allow for the expression of feelings and thoughts unable to be expressed solely in words or numbers. Visual Arts provide students with opportunities to develop creative problem solving capacities, abilities to refine critical and analytical thinking skills, and environments to foster self-expression. Art is a universal language, which promotes individual identity to define, record and celebrate the history of humankind.

    The Visual Arts:

    • develop keen observation skills
    • nurture a visual culture
    • create meaning
    • provide a concrete record of the history of civilization
    • make connections globally to the exploration of self
    • provide the growth of right and left brain cognition
    • develop motor and spatial skills
