Mead McLean - Department Chair of Art and Humanities

I want my students to be as versatile as possible when they finish class. In art appreciation, I want people to think critically, describe accurately, and interpret based on the reality of what they see. In drawing and design, the basic concepts I work from--structure, composition, form--should be applicable to any art career from design to animation. 

With art, as with any difficult task, you reach a point where you seem to not be progressing. Your knowledge may feel stagnant and your drawings may feel repetitive, but you keep going anyway because you want that skill more than anything. Eventually you realize that you only fail if you give up completely and that all that time spent on the plateau can be fun if you learn to enjoy the view.

Tommy Taylor - Assistant Professor of Art

I help students delegate their life experiences with art so that they can process, execute, and move on. To do this efficiently students need to understand as clearly as possible what is expected of them. I make sure everyone learns each other’s names in the first 20 minutes on the first day of class. This keeps the class and myself sharp and present with each other from the very beginning. This accountable group dynamic helps build trust so that they not only hear but understand when I remind them that “you are each other’s greatest resource beyond this classroom and art school. Remember, that the art world is made of people.” In sum, my goal is that students understand how personal experience through hard work, self-discovery, and collaboration connects the world with ourselves through an identity in art making.
