The objective of the art program is to develop creative, expressive and technically competent graduates who direct their time, energy, skills, and materials toward fulfilling these program outcomes. Within an aesthetic and historical context, students will form and articulate qualitative judgments and make critical decisions about their work and the work of others from the perspective of contemporary culture.

In the art program, the learning challenge will provide students with knowledge of other cultures, as well as their own. The creative work will be tailored to the unique intellectual, emotional and physical abilities of the student.

The art program is designed to provide a rewarding creative experience, challenging the student to flourish in technical abilities, design decisions, concept development and aesthetic evaluation.
