The arts offer a means of communicating thoughts and feelings that transcend the written word. The deepest human emotions and ideas can be effectively conveyed through the visual arts, drama, music, and dance. Our mission is to help students find their creative voices and hone their artistic skills through the arts, so that they can communicate their ideas and feelings.” — Madeline Wilson, Department Chair
How do we teach?
The goal of the visual arts program is to have students develop the creativity, imagination and necessary technical skill to practice art as a vital means of self-expression. The faculty are professional artists, and our students take full advantage of New York City cultural resources to complement their work in the classroom.
