The Art Department places a high value on the unique qualities in each person. For each art course, there are many different and appropriate solutions as students try to communicate ideas and feelings through the language of Art. Students are encouraged to be curious, to experiment for the best effect, to respect knowledge, and to strive for self-discipline in their work.
