About the Art Department




    Visual Art Philosophy
    Art is human expression in visual form.  It has been, is and always will be the means by which each culture records, expresses, and interprets the world around it.  Art is a visual form of communication that addresses the physical, emotional, social and intellectual needs of our students, It promotes self-awareness, self-expression and well-being.  Art presents opportunities to develop the higher levels of thought.  It offers unique, creative experiences that help to build self-esteem.  It fosters the recognition and appreciation of all individuals and all cultures.
