Artistry is about being creative, embracing original ideas, developing personal skills, and expressing what is true. The arts are meant to connect, challenge and change people. This can only occur when the work is real, honest, and sincere. As individuals or in an ensemble setting, students and faculty seek the truth in all things. Our work should reflect this truth, which brings us together as a school and as a human community.
Developing artistic skill is hard work and takes time and dedication. Randolph students and faculty develop strong personal commitments to each other through our crafts. We learn from each other and we work toward reaching our own potential for growth and understanding. Through this hard work in the arts, we discover how building character occurs at the individual level and at the group level.
Finally, we recognize that all people are drawn to the arts for many different reasons. Whether it is joy, sadness, enlightenment, confusion, shared perspectives, or solidarity, all are nurtured by the artistic ideas that connect us, challenge us, and change us.
