Mission & Vision

The mission of the School of Art is founded on three passionately held principles:

  1. That the exploration of ideas through the visual arts is both necessary and culturally valuable
  2. That an understanding of visual communications within contemporary society is critical for an informed world view
  3. That an appreciation and knowledge of art history, past and present, is essential to both young scholars and developing artists.
