We offer our students an exciting and synergistic learning environment in which to practice the visual arts and to study art in historical and theoretical contexts. We work to ensure that students graduate with the ability to think creatively and critically, both through the art they produce and in the way they analyze and discuss past and contemporary art. We are committed to helping students achieve the visual literacy that is increasingly essential to negotiating the world today. We prepare students to pursue advanced degrees in graduate school; for careers as visual artists or in galleries, museums, or arts administration; and for a life enriched by the visual arts.
