Mission and Goals


The goal of the Creative Arts Department is to engage students with works of the creative imagination.

Courses are designed to achieve this goal through three approaches:


  1. by developing within students an aesthetic appreciation of the arts of the world in which they live

  2. by enabling students to understand the arts as they reflect the cultural spirit of various epochs in human experience, and

  3. by encouraging the unlocking and development of students’ own creative potential and skill
