he study of Visual Arts provides students with opportunities to develop as confident, reflective and independent individuals.

Art as a disciplined mode of learning is concerned with matters of quality, value and significance. Imaginative interpretations of the world and reasoned critical responses made by teachers and students foster a learning environment that is based on respect for others' points of view, shared experiences and the individual's unique preferences. All courses are structured around the teaching of conventions and techniques of making and studying art and the exploration of materials and forms in relation to topics and concepts that engage the student’s imagination. The Visual Arts Department offers students skills and experiences in a range of forms including painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, photography, video and digital media.
