The Arts Department seeks to cultivate the whole student, gradually building many kinds of literacy while developing intuition, reasoning, imagination, and dexterity into unique forms of expression. This process requires not merely an active mind, but a trained one. It is our belief that arts education helps students by initiating them into a variety of ways of perceiving and thinking. The students gain powerful tools for understanding human experiences both past and present, learning to adapt to and respect others' ways of thinking, working, and expressing themselves. They learn artistic modes of problem solving, which bring an array of expressive, analytical, and developmental tools to every human situation, analyzing nonverbal communication and making informed judgments about cultural products and issues. Our students are able to communicate their thoughts and feelings in a variety of modes, giving then a vastly more powerful repertoire of self-expression.
