Visual Arts

The visual arts program embraces a wide range of 2D and 3D media, including drawing, painting, sculpture, woodworking, digital art, and photography. While the concepts of design, aesthetics, and historical context are included in faculty instruction, students are encouraged to enjoy the process, use self-expression, and learn to evaluate and critique their work. The curriculum includes visiting artists, travel opportunities, local exhibitions, and competitions.

I firmly believe that each student should have the opportunity to contribute to a work of art that feels bigger than one's own self.Sarah knouse, visual arts department chair
