Expanding awareness and fostering understanding of art are goals of Visual Arts at Carroll. We hope to enrich lives through aesthetic and creative experiences. Studio practice exposes students to the long and rich history of human endeavor in visual art and they experience active learning through tactile/visual means not usually associated with most other academic studies. Challenges in aesthetics, technique, design, and craftsmanship present opportunities for growth in new directions and modes. We strive to offer those challenges to all students, those with experience in art as well as those with little or none.
