Our objective is to foster the growth of all students in sensitivity, skill, and appreciation of the arts while developing perception, personal insight, and conceptual thinking.  The Art Department provides a sequential program of instruction which integrates the four disciplines of art, art production, art history, and art criticism and aesthetics, while fulfilling national and state standards. Each student is given the fundamentals to enjoy the art experience and the opportunity to develop on a more advanced level, either for self-fulfillment or to prepare and qualify for admission to a recognized art program in college to  earn a B.F.A., B.A., or B.S. degree.
