Department Statement

Courses in the Department of Art develop students’ perceptual skills, their access to the imagination, and their ability to think critically and independently. Instruction in the use of art materials and specific art and design techniques and methods, enables students to create original works of art and design reflecting their evolving vision. Our program also fosters a broad cultural awareness of visual arts and design practices in society. Graduating majors should be able to clearly express their ideas about creating art and design. In addition, their grasp of historical and contemporary aesthetic issues should inform their own work. We offer excellent facilities, small classes taught by a distinguished faculty, space to work, and field trips to museums, galleries, and artists’ studios.
