Mission

The Art department at Emory & Henry College prepares students for a variety of career and graduate school opportunities by educating them to understand and apply the creative process.

Values

We believe that the connections students find in the study of art create an understanding of historical perspectives, contemporary issues, and relationships inherent in art and life. We aim to provide an intensive study of the visual arts and their histories in which students will use creative problem solving skills to understand and express visual language. We foster an environment where students can develop their abilities and confidence to conceive, analyze and understand works of art in a variety of forms.
