the fine arts

Art. Music. Theater. To learn fully to appreciate even one of these is to live a life enriched by beauty, mystery, and magic. To create and share one of these is to give the world a gift of your talent, discipline, and vision. And to teach one of the fine arts, to nurture in the young a love and a spark, is to open up their eyes, ears, and hearts to the beauty they possess.

An artist might paint or sculpt, design a magazine or website, or teach a child. A musician might perform or compose, manage or promote concerts, or repair instruments. A theater major might star on Broadway, paint sets, sew costumes, launch a community theater, or write reviews. All of them are doing what they love. All of them are making art possible.

The fine arts graduate might do all of this and much more.
