Why Study Art?

Art is a powerful form of communication that crosses barriers and reaches diverse groups of people. The study of art isn’t learned through random experience any more than is the study of math or biology. It is a technical skill that stimulates critical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity — all valued skills in today’s workplace. People who study art are generally visionaries who are intuitive, self-motivated, and very aware of their aesthetic environment. Students who major in art, fine arts, or graphic design will gain a solid foundation in color theory and application, visual design, traditional media applications, and contemporary digital media. Students graduating from the program will be prepared for professional employment, graduate school, and other meaningful contributions to society.
