Department of Art Our Mission Our students will flourish within a Christian environment, participating in a visual arts curriculum that examines historical context, contemporary issues and imaging technology while balancing both theory and practice. Above all, we teach our students to be creative problem-solvers with open, responsible and flexible attitudes, capable of generating multiple solutions to contemporary visual challenges. We foster a regionally and nationally recognized faculty who practice a balanced dedication to teaching, artistic execution and promotion of the arts. We are committed to maintaining up-to-date imaging technology and curriculum in tandem with liberal arts breadth and foundation. We continually emphasize safety and a working environment conducive to creative learning and individualized attention. We prepare our students to be competitive in the visual arts job market and exhibition circuit. We are committed to ongoing interaction with and recognition of our alumnae.
