About Art

This is not your traditional art school. You will have the chance to study the visual arts while obtaining a liberal arts education. You will develop your visual and analytical talents while gaining the breadth of knowledge, intellectual curiosity and writing skills that only a liberal arts education can provide.

The Fine Arts program includes study in drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, ceramics, and graphic design. You will develop and hone observational, practical, and analytical skills, while also developing your own artistic voice both in and out of the classroom. Experiential study lets you reflect on your work and become independently motivated and engaged in the field.

“We are just starting our lives, and most of us have no clue where it can go. I decided to combine ideas of negative self-image and expression of this concept of wabi-sabi through wabi specifically — wabi being the kind of perfect beauty that comes from imperfection.”
