The Arts at Poly
The mission of the Visual Arts and Performing Arts Departments is to prepare students for a lifetime of artistic appreciation and engagement. Students take coursework that nurtures creativity, intellectual curiosity, and aesthetic understanding to establish a firm foundation in skills, content, and experience.
Both departments seek a balance between offering broad exposure to the arts and providing students the opportunity to achieve at an advanced level. 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.
