The aim of the department is to cultivate an awareness, appreciation, and understanding of the various forms of visual experience. Through instruction and practice, the students may develop their creative abilities for practical use by following a concentration in fine art or illustration. Fine art will prepare the student as a professional artist or art teacher or will provide preprofessional training in allied fields; illustration is designed to prepare the student for a career as an illustrator.
