    In the Fine Arts Department at Haverford College, the focus is on the individual. Studio classes are small, and students from beginners to majors receive individual instruction. Every student is encouraged to develop the physical and critical skills necessary to create art. 

    The philosophy of the department is that observational skills are the cornerstone of all visual art disciplines. Cognition and processing information are key skills for any discipline—in the humanities or the sciences—and for this reason art at Haverford is specifically geared towards enhancing visual perception. Such finely tuned skills can benefit anyone professionally and personally.
