Art Department

Our Mission

The mission of the Department of Art is to prepare the student to be a practicing artist, to enter graduate school for further professional education or to enter the job market in art related careers. Students may also select art courses as a means of achieving a greater sense of personal creativity and accomplishment. The educational mission of the department is central and primary, but in a larger sense, the Department of Art also views itself as a major regional community advocate for the visual arts.
