PHILOSOPHY

 

The visual arts give all people of the world the opportunity to pursue and find meaning in their lives, intellectually and emotionally, through artistic forms of expression.  Each discipline within the visual arts provides its own unique approaches to thinking, problem solving, creativity, habits of mind and enables alternative forms of communication. 



 

The visual arts connect generations and cultures. They provide a deeper knowledge of self and relationship to community, enhancing an aesthetic awareness of our environment. 



 

The visual arts are an essential part of every student’s education, being at the core of life’s journey. They enrich personal and social existence, furnishing lifelong avenues of self-expression, enjoyment, emotional exploration, cultural sensitivity and vocation.
