Fine and Performing Arts Department

The purpose of Art is to discover, unearth, and enhance various ways of engaging with the world and the human experience. We do that in this department through performance and creative acts which become the instruments of personal expression, and which are meaningful in their relationship to the larger world.


“As a teacher in the arts, I have been fortunate so often to witness the emergence of a student’s creative spirit. What a joy to be a part of that process.”
