The human being is a creative animal. The fountainhead of creativity lies in the imagination, which manifests itself in the projection of images. Art, then, is the language in images by which man communicates ideas and concepts of the self, others, and the universe. This program is designed to allow students to discover and develop themselves and their creativity in such mediums as drawing, painting, watercolor, and ceramics.
