The variety and balance of the curriculum offered in the arts is designed to give students the training, experience, skill and integrity that encourage them to make use of their creative activities and to develop a well-rounded liberal arts background.

The Fine Arts Department strives:
1. to inculcate in the student an appreciation of the arts;
2. to assist the student in expressing herself through the arts;
3. to integrate the heritage of the past and present with the future for the purpose of the transmission of culture;
4. to remove boundaries and allow students to explore aspects of life around them in new ways by connection the arts with other disciplines.
