Built with practicality in mind, art & design students gain an understanding of the importance of visual culture in human expression. Students are taught to be thoughtful in their work, first considering ideas then considering choices for expressing those ideas. With practice in competently applied design principles, students graduate with the understanding of what constitutes well-crafted art.
