The Fine Arts Department has multiple goals. We encourage the individual student’s potential to communicate and express creatively. We strive to develop sensitivity to the human condition and an awareness of the role of the artist effecting change. We endeavor to make art a dynamic influence in the life of the school so that students and faculty can become more aware of the beauty surrounding them. We emphasize the long lasting effect of fine arts and its impact on the students’ lives.
1. To develop aesthetic awareness and the skills necessary for observation and critical judgment of a work of art.
2. To provide opportunities for artistic expression which are both productive and satisfying for the individual.
3. To develop skills of specific techniques.
4. To provide multiple opportunities to develop individual potential.
5. To develop ability for expressive communication “in an environment that challenges students to grow in respect for self and others.”

7. To promote critical thinking.
