This modern facility houses all three departments of the School of Visual and Performing Arts: Art, Music, and Theatre. The Art wing includes studios for Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Graphic Design, Illustration, and Photography, as well as the MFA program and Art Gallery. These professional quality spaces add tremendous value to an already quality arts education. It is a diverse and invigorating environment that inspires, motivates and fosters a vibrant culture of creative problem-solvers.
