Art is something that stimulates our thoughts, emotions, beliefs, or ideas through the senses.
Art is used to describe several things: a study of creative skills, a process of using the creative skills, a product of the creative skills, and the audiences experience with the creative skills. The creative arts are a collection of disciplines that produce artworks that are compelled by a personal drive and echo or reflect a message, mood, or symbolism for the viewer to interpret. Art works are defined by purposeful, creative interpretations of limitless concepts or ideas in order to communicate something to another person. Art works sometimes are explicitly made for this purpose or interpreted based on images or objects.
Some of the Art Programs offered at WHCC are listed below.
