Designing an art program capable of broadening horizons requires faculty, classes and opportunities that encompass the many shades of creativity present in UHCL’s student body and the larger Bay Area community. What’s needed is a vision that maximizes inspiration and response across an audience whose members are at different places in their artistic lives.
From a blank canvas more than 30 years ago, UHCL has created a comprehensive art program with three primary focuses. First and foremost is art education. Working in a variety of media with students pursuing both undergraduate and graduate degrees in art, faculty members take apart the creative process, illuminate its mysteries and then guide students to put the pieces back together in a way that fulfills their unique artistic visions.
Secondly, the university strives to be a resource for art in the community. A host of programs, designed for everyone from pre-school children to high school students to senior citizens, provide opportunities that can bring people of all ages and experience levels to their fullest expressions as both artists and art lovers.
Being a home for art is the third focus of UHCL’s fine arts program. By providing exhibit spaces and displays of public art, the university gives both world-renowned and emerging artists a place to unveil their creations and inspire us.
The variety of programs and opportunities combine to make UHCL a playground for creativity. Whether you are drawn to the university for a class or for an exhibit, you are sure to find a reason to inspire or imagine or, perhaps, simply to invite art into your life.
