Art Department

The Art Department is committed to the belief that man's reflection of life is manifested through his or her art. Students are able to fully appreciate art and man's artistic expressions through study, observation and experience. The art facilities include studios for ceramics, sculpture/metal arts, painting, drawing, photography, printmaking and design, plus large lecture rooms and a gallery, where exhibitions and installations are presented regularly where students learn how to plan, design and organize space. The Department enhances its instructional program by inviting guest artists and craftsmen to participate in master classes and workshops.
