Mission Statement

Mission Statement

The goal of the Creative Arts Department is to engage students with works of the creative imagination.  Courses meet this goal through three approaches:


1. By developing the students’ aesthetic appreciation of the arts of the world in which they live,
2. By enabling students to understand the arts as reflections of the cultural spirit of various epochs, and
3. By encouraging the development of students’ own creative potential and skill
