Our Mission

Skidmore’s strong tradition in the liberal arts grounds our majors’ education in the Arts, Humanities, and Sciences, where courses emphasize critical thinking, significant reading and writing skills, and quantitative reasoning abilities.

Within this broader context, the Department of Art seeks to introduce and develop in all of its students those intellectual, creative, perceptual and technical abilities which are appropriate to the making of art, and the ability to evaluate, judge and appreciate which is appropriate to the understanding of works of art.
