Field of Study: Art/Art Studies, General
Description: The Visual Arts program is an exploration of the visual language of art and design. Students experience making objects and images within historical, cultural, and theoretical contexts. Being made in the image of God includes the invitation to understand and hone the visual, critical, and creative gifts. This includes growing mastery of the visual language both by understanding the history of this discipline and by engaging in the critical issues of theory. Those studying Art have a responsibility to develop the intuition as well as the intellect, tapping the emotions as well as the sensory skills. All these need to be incorporated before the unique voice of each student can be nurtured and encouraged to life. In an increasingly media-saturated society, meaning is disseminated through the visual, making this field increasingly critical to any leadership vision.
