The arts have been part of life from the very beginning. They have described, defined, and deepened human experience. All people have an abiding need for meaning – to connect time and space, body and spirit, intellect and emotion. We create art to make these connections, to express the otherwise inexpressible. A society without the arts is unimaginable.
The mission of Arts Education is to challenge each student to develop and maintain a dynamic awareness of the importance of the arts in the human experience. The program is based on the belief that the arts are basic to the classroom experience and life-long learning.
