The Fine Arts Department will work with students to develop innate human characteristics in order to facilitate a better understanding of culture and traditions of oneself and others. A focus on creativity and its link to technology, as well as other disciplines, will challenge students to think outside of convention and problem solve, which are skills in the 21st century.
