Mission Statement
Studio Angelico, a community of artists and educators, stimulates, challenges, supports and educates students to become:
educated viewers with visual literacy and critical thinking,
professional artists with technical and creative direction,
thoughtful and responsible citizens in a global community.

We seek through dialogue and practice to work together within a liberal arts context to appreciate, understand and communicate the diversity and complexity of the human experience as expressed through the visual arts.

Studio Angelico, the name of the building that houses the Art Program at Siena Heights University, has been a center for art and art education for more than 60 years. Named for Fra Angelico, the Renaissance painter of the Dominican Order who lived in 15th century Florence, the Studio continues a long tradition of valuing quality, creativity, craftsmanship and reflection in the making of art.
