As a department, our greatest strength derives from our position
as an integral part of the larger liberal arts university; and
students pursuing degrees in our programs are the beneficiaries.
Since the making of images is an intellectual process, the
education of artists should go considerably beyond instruction of
technique and media. Artistic process-at it's best-is creative,
intuitive, analytical and complex.
Our commitment is to instruct young artists, providing them with
the tools, techniques, vocabulary, traditions and history of their
chosen profession, so that they possess as comprehensive and
substantive and educational experience as possible. In this way
they will have the technical and intellectual preparation necessary
for the development of their own personal creative solutions and
the means to make better-informed career decisions. Further,
our vibrant department has gained NASAD (National Association of
Schools of Art and Design) accreditation, aligning us with the
highest standards held by leading art schools nationwide.
