Warren Wilson College Mission

The mission of Warren Wilson College is to provide an education combining liberal arts study, work, and service with a strong commitment to environmental responsibility and experiential opportunities for international and cross-cultural understanding in a setting that promotes wisdom, spiritual growth, and contribution to the common good.

Art Department Mission

The mission of the art program is to implement a course of study in the visual arts that supports, integrates, and contributes to the mission of the college. The program affirms and nurtures the creative spirit of each individual while providing knowledge and structure to promote the appreciation and understanding of art as a discipline and of its contributions to the culture and history of humanity. Each person is encouraged to develop a unique vision and to come to a greater understanding and appreciation of the diverse responses and contributions of others. Students will explore how and why they work creatively as well as develop appreciation for art in a historical context.
