The art department’s mission statement (in part):
The program in art and art history recognizes the inherent expressive value of art, its enrichment of the human experience, and the dependence of global culture on visual literacy.
Our curriculum challenges students to create, read, and analyze images through written and oral communication, critical thinking, and experiential learning.
Most of the full time faculty in the art department at Agnes Scott have blogs. Nell Ruby, associate professor of art, has students in her studio art classes blog in order to encourage reflection on the product and process of their art.
Ruby has found that reflective writing can cast a stronger light on the form and content of the students’ work, help the students become more aware of their approaches to art, and can empower them to find constructive avenues in their process.
