Department of Visual, Performing, and Media Arts
Our expanded Visual, Performing, and Media Arts Department offers opportunities for broader artistic expressions as forms of worship.
Creativity offers us a chance to emulate the artistic excellence of our Creator. Being made in His image means that we have a desire to be like Him in the creative process, as well as in our enjoyment of His creation. Because our creativity reflects an act of worship, our work is bonded with our faith.
The goal of the department is to provide students with studies, practice, and experiences from a Christ-centered perspective that will serve to guide their ability to demonstrate excellence in creative work; achieve competency in the use of tools and technology; and articulate analytical perceptions in theoretical, cultural, and stylistic contexts.
The Visual, Performing and Media Arts faculty is dedicated to assisting students in defining their calling as artists, Christians, and professionals so they can communicate with expertise in our culturally diverse world—where creative expression really does matter.
