VPA prepares you to be an arts practitioner with a set of skills and values that will make you an active and responsible participant in society. VPA integrates individual production and collaborative processes, skills and projects, and the expressive and analytical. It addresses the complex issues of working in public space creating murals, sculptures, installations, book arts, painted and electronic billboards, light sculptures, large-scale digital and cyber art, time-based work, performance and environmental art, and public ceremonial works. VPA provides you with a balance of studio and theory through a combination of core concept and skill courses, visiting artist experiences, independent learning opportunities, and a community-based projects/service learning component. Our program broadens your perspectives and nurtures your talents.
