Faculty Note

Studio art is about process and risk-taking. The process as well as the product hold mysteries that need to be explored. Because we are all unique creations, so also is our art. As faculty we believe that the creative process must be allowed to develop without rigid boundaries but within structures and frameworks that have been carefully composed so that our students can make strategic connections.

As professors, our job is to make the spectrum broad, but to also lay our personal and technical standards before our students to entice them to reach beyond what they already know. We strive to maintain a rich environment so that individual discoveries can be nurtured and personal growth can be experientially achieved.

Faculty offices are located in the Art Center. There is a great deal of activity in our building, and we like it that way. We are easily accessible to students. Our office doors are always open.
