Excellent communication is the ability to transmit a message bythe sender to a receiver and have that message replicated in the receiver's mind. Excellent communication is the ability to receive a transmitted message by the sender and have the receiver be able to replicate the form and intent of the message in the receiver's mind. If the receiver is uncertain about some aspect of a communication, it is the responsibility of the receiver to clarify the communication through the artful use of questions. The transmitting communicator also accepts the responsibility for the result of a communication. This means the transmitter must be certain to code a communication so it is received in a manner that is understandable to the receiver.Visual Communications through Art is a demanding studio and design theory program aimed to provide the student with a community of other serious, disciplined students to further challenge and inspire one another through peer learning, critiquing, sharing of ideas and encouragement. This program requires that students develop a viable portfolio, worthy of consideration by college admissions and scholarship committees.
