Our goal is to train scenic, costume, and lighting designers in the performing arts to become professional visual artists of the highest caliber. We hope to aid in developing artists who can invent personal, unique, and enriching solutions to the complex artistic challenges that manifest themselves in the dramatic exploration of complex human emotions, ideas, and relationships.
