Art Department

  • The Art Department exists to stimulate students in their development and growth through the utilization of knowledge and skills. Our goal is to teach students the necessary skills to transform thoughts and ideas into a concrete expression that shapes, reveals, and embodies art. The Art Department also provides a wide variety of content and media to encourage selfexpression, self-development and the appreciation of one’s self and others as well as art experiences.
