Performing Arts


We stress art as a form of communication within a cultural and historical context. Students learn technical skills with which to express themselves, as well as vocabulary to discuss their vision and the vision of others. We strive to introduce our students to a lifelong appreciation of art as a means of personal and cultural representation. It is our goal that through making art, we produce aesthetically responsive citizens with a genuine interest and involvement in the arts.

You'll see evidence of student artists all over campus in the form of sculptures, murals and playbills.
