Our Mission: 

The mission of the Creative Arts Department is to engage students with works of the creative imagination. The creative arts curriculum empowers students:

  • To understand the creative process and be able to internalize this process for self-assessment and creative growth. 
  • To understand the fundamental elements of the arts.
  • To demonstrate technical excellence in the skills, tools, materials, and/or software used in their medium(s) of choice, and to apply those skills in practica, internships, independent studies and/or capstones
  • To gain knowledge of historical and contemporary art movements, trends, and genres, and to identify artists relevant to their own process of art-making. 
  • To gain the ability to articulate the content of their own work, and to engage in critical dialogue and thoughtful discourse.
