A Flight Above The Rest

Art Department


We offer several different mediums within the Art Department.  We believe that our curriculum teaches students to learn new skills to become better problem solvers, more tolerant of other cultures, communicate what they are thinking, and to be more marketable in the real world, through the study of ART. 


“I believe that creativity will be the currency of the 21st century.”

-Gerald Gordon, Ph.D., President/CEO, Fairfax County(Virginia) Economic Development Authority


“Arts education aids students in skills needed in the workplace: Flexibility, the ability to solve problems and communicate, the ability to learn new skills, to be creative and innovative, and to strive for excellence.”

-Joseph M. Calahan, Director of Cooperate Communications, Xerox Corporation
