The Visual Arts Department provides opportunities for creative expression that enrich the whole person and allow each student to realize their creative capacity. We provide guidance, challenge, and an environment for each student to explore and grow in creative thought and work. We offer guidance and the technical skills needed for a variety of career options within the board range of art and design fields.
