Mr. Vaughn Holsey, Chair

Fine Arts use a universal graphic language to communicate human ideas and feelings. Much of what we know of all our human past, we know from the art that people produced. Every aspect of society is affected by some form of art and design.

The Fine Arts Department offers courses which develop the ability to analyze and comprehend the visual messages of the past and present. Students will be able to construct works of art and design which are balanced in composition and organized by the elements and principles of design and are examples of clear visual communication and careful craftsmanship.

Society needs artists, just as it needs scientists, technicians, workers, professional people, witnesses of faith, teachers, fathers and mothers, who ensure the growth of the person and the development of the community by that supreme art form which is the art of education.

~ Pope John Paul 2
