    This program facilitates learning through a hands-on, project-based curriculum. Students choose one interactive course in either Fine Arts and Design Explorations, which builds artistic skills in subjects including painting, photography, and graphic design, or Design Strategies, which provides an insider's view of design and management and fashion merchandising. Students benefit from small class sizes and participate in unique virtual field trips, special guest lectures, and individual portfolio reviews.
