Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a visual education to a student population with diverse life experiences, educational expectations, and professional requirements. To achieve this we provide a structured and supportive creative environment in which students are encouraged to ask questions, explore traditional and emerging technologies, take visual risks, and solve problems. Our students acquire the aesthetic judgment, art historical knowledge, technical skills, vocabulary, and attitudes necessary to become art educators, art historians, graphic designers, independent studio artists, practitioners in art-related professions, informed patrons of the arts, or to pursue further university studies. We serve as advocates for the visual arts by creating original art and scholarship, by presenting art exhibitions, and by offering public lectures and presentations for the University, local, and regional communities.
