Fine Arts

The mission of the Fine Arts program is to prepare students with a studio emphasis in drawing and painting, sculpture, or printmaking for the rigor of further study and studio practice at four-year institutions of art in design. Bridging the foundational year experience, students connect their own creative expression to a solid foundation of work from observation and perception.  Students will explore their technical abilities, critical awareness, knowledge of historical frameworks, and self-discipline to create a body of work that synthesizes with their own personal vision.
