Visual and Digital Arts

Visual art is life in itself, reflecting the way we perceive the world and how we navigate through it. We live with art every day. Art is all around us, in the clothes we wear, the cars we drive, the buildings we occupy, and the environments we consider. Art is used to capture and express a wide array of beliefs, and ideas embraced by people from around the world and from every period of history. Art is an outlet of our inner self. A bridge that brings together gaps in our society.

At Justin-Siena, the student artist is encouraged to give personal voice to their visual art exploration. To invite us, challenge us and dare us, to consider their observations. To ask questions of ourselves and our place in our community.
