About the Art Visit Day

October 18, 2013

The Department of Fine Arts offers students the opportunity to learn to see, to communicate visual ideas effectively, to develop analytical skills, and to develop sound aesthetic judgment. The Art faculty are highly skilled professionals, with extensive experience in their respective fields of work. We are committed to effective and empathic teaching, as well as working toward the highest levels of our chosen discipline. As an art student you will have access to state of the art facilities, and upon graduation you will join the many art students who have earned an extensive resume of success in a wide variety of fields. We look forward to meeting you at our Art Visit Day!
