ACADEMICS

  • Art

    The art program's objectives are to sharpen visual perception, to deepen understanding of art history, and to teach technical skills and concepts to further the student's appreciation and creation in the visual arts. Interdisciplinary courses relate the visual arts to the arts of music and theatre, in both contemporary and historic periods.
