Program Description

Our comprehensive Art Program offers several areas of concentration: art history, ceramics, computer graphics, drawing, design, sculpture, water color painting, oil painting, and photography.  The program is designed to include pre-professional and professional courses, personal enrichment in specific art areas, and classes for students who plan an art-related career.

Art courses help students develop a capacity for visual analysis and the ability to solve problems in new and creative ways.
