Mission Statement

As a modern “social enterprise” the college aspires to promote sustainable innovation in all sectors, to stress openness and transparency, to practice total inclusiveness, and to generate an awareness of how great minds and talents of the past can point us to the future.

The college’s interdisciplinary curriculum undergoes constant review and evaluation by students, faculty, administration, industry professionals and an ongoing advisory committee. Each syllabus is designed to develop students’ innate talents in a variety of traditional and contemporary media. Along their route to a Fine and Applied Arts degree students will acquire recognition of their accomplishments through certificate stepping stones.

Each of our programs braids into others, enlarging students’ awareness of what is possible.

Our capstone courses, projects and events ensure their readiness, preparing them to launch into the real professional world of art.
