A good arts program features specialized areas of study that students might not normally have access to.  Going far beyond basic art classes, our art and architecture offerings can challenge students who are simply beginning or who already have a solid art background.  Students often continue studying art in colleges such as Rhode Island School of Design or the Pratt Institute.

"When I'm drawing, it's probably the most therapeutic thing that I could possibly do to destress."

"Never in a million years did I think I would have become a serious artist.  But Gov's gave me that and I'm psyched."
