Visual Arts continually challenge traditional boundaries to create new possibilities, which are evident, both in the way we make art and in the way we understand what artists from around the world do. Theory and practice in visual arts are dynamic, ever-changing, and connect many areas of study and human experience. New ways of expressing ideas help to make visual arts one of the most interesting and challenging areas of learning and experience.
