Welcome to the School of the Arts (SOA) Visual Arts Career Cluster
As a form of self-expression, the arts provide a way to appreciate, understand and connect with the world. In art, students are immersed in a realm of endless possibilities - flexing muscles in their brains that allow them to strengthen their ability to think creatively, solve complex problems and think "outside the box.
In the visual arts career cluster, students explore techniques, ideas and concepts to encourage, challenge, and inspire them to take creative risks. I love helping students find their artistic voice and helping them navigate the journey towards post-secondary studies and/or career exploration in the visual arts. SOA grads have been accepted with scholarships at a wide variety of collegiate programs - including: The Cooper Union, Kutztown University, Maine College of Art, Millersville University, Moore College of Art, Pennsylvania College of Art & Design, Savannah College of Art & Design, Rochester Institute of Technology, among others.
“Each mistake teaches you something new about yourself. There is no failure, remember, except in no longer trying. It is the courage to continue that counts.” – Chris Bradford
