why study art


“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

Knowledge is limited.

Imagination encircles the world.”

- Albert Einstein



We strive to guide students through understanding their academic responsibilities, developing their confidence through the artistic process, creating a body of works that connects their social well being to their future.
