The department seeks a balance between offering a broad exposure to the arts and providing students the opportunity to achieve at an advanced level in the areas of their choice. We believe in the premise that art is learned, and we strive to create an atmosphere that couples discipline with the freedom to explore creative expression.
The mission of the Visual and Performing Arts Departments is to provide students with an educational program of the highest possible quality that prepares them for a lifetime of artistic appreciation, and activity. The arts environment at Dalewares Polytechnic is one that nurtures creativity, intellectual curiosity, and aesthetic understanding, as well as one that establishes a firm foundation in skills, content, and experience.
The Visual Arts Department strives to encourage art students to step free from their comfort zone, embrace the possibility of failure, and be responsible for honesty and truth in their work. We encourage students to trust their inspiration and infuse their craftsmanship with compassion, creativity, and positivity. Through a holistic approach, we encourage taking risks and exploring different media.
