Mission Statement

The Art, Art History, Dance, Music, Music Industry Studies, Photography amd Theater Arts programs are part of the School of Visual & Performing Arts and, as such, have developed the following mission statement: 
“The Norco College School of Visual & Performing Arts is a pursuit of an interdisciplinary study of the arts by selecting among courses in historical context, studio practice, performance ensemble, creative writing, and ideas and interpretation of the arts. In the Visual & Performing Arts core course, students will experience the theory and practice of the arts in a workshop setting and, in studio or ensemble courses, will gain practical experience in at least one area of the visual or performing arts or creative writing. Courses in the historical context and interpretation of the arts will enable students to understand how style, subject matter and materials may respond to different motivations and purposes."
