Fine Arts Department Purpose Statement

The East Ridge Fine Arts Department inspires individual growth, artistic excellence, and the commitment to embrace challenges through curricular courses and co-curricular organizations.

It is a myth that one is just "born with a talent for art." Artistic skills can be taught and improved. The Art Department develops and challenges the creative artist within each student. The Art Department offers opportunities for students to develop the skills and knowledge to use art in their careers and in their personal lives.
