The Art Department provides students with an outlet for their creativity. Students will be given an environment to express themselves and make intelligent decisions and judgments about their own work and that of others.
Through art history they will learn about the rich background of art, which will provide an understanding of ideas and a knowledge base to draw from when creating their own artwork.
Through written and verbal critiques, students will be able to express thoughts on what they have seen and created. Discussing aesthetics will provide terminology and will train students to develop an “artistic eye”.
During production, students will experience different media and will be given the opportunity to manipulate them in order to convey their ideas. The Art Department ultimately provides students with a new way of seeing, as well as allowing them to bring, out their creative side.
