Diversity in the Art Studio
Art is a vital human endeavour. As long as there have been humans on this planet there has been art. Without exception it is practiced in every culture and creed. Our contemporary, Western conception of Art is only a small part of a rich and diverse artistic world. We believe students should be aware of their place in this context. In exploring the art of other times and cultures, students develop their understanding of diversity and difference.
In an act of solidarity with artists and producers from around the world, the Art Studio is stocked with African, kitenge aprons, proudly worn by our students, who even know the makers of their apron by name.
