The Visual Art curriculum extends beyond skills, techniques and concepts. The faculty provide environments that promote purposeful exploration towards the creation of visual expressions. Our intent is to have students develop the habits of mind and practice that allow them to become curious, confident, and resilient individuals devoted to enriching the world and the lives of people around them.
Students must earn two credits in the Visual and Performing Arts. All Art Department courses may be taken to fulfill the Visual and Performing Arts requirement or general elective credit. Courses taken to fulfill the Visual and Performing Arts graduation requirement must be taken for a grade; courses taken for general elective credit may earn either a letter grade or Credit/No Credit.
