Art Is

Art is a fundamental activity. It is a way of thinking, a way of examining the world, understanding it, dealing with it, reporting on it, creating new ways of looking at it -- even making things never before seen or imagined.

We have developed our methods of teaching during many years of experience. In addition to providing instruction on all aspects of this important and engaging activity, we encourage students to explore and use the whole range of what art is and can do.

The Importance of Art

Art develops parts of the mind not developed through other means, and helps improve such skills as conceptual thinking, observation, understanding, spatial relationships and fine motor skills. It also seems to stimulate curiosity and, in the right educational atmosphere, helps with self confidence.

There is much evidence that making visual art is an inherent human function. Most serious artists understand this intuitively. All indigenous peoples throughout time and in all parts of the world have made art. Historians and anthropologists often assume art making  was done in the service of hunting or religion.
