About the Department

The Department of Fine Arts helps our student artists explore the artist's role in our world through an atmosphere of stylistic freedom. Through one-on-one relationships with faculty members and the ability to work on real-world projects, our community of artists allows students to refine their artistic work and broaden their knowledge while training with professionals currently working in the field. 

Meet some of our students and faculty to learn more about the department and our engagement with the community:
