"Art  is  a language, instrument of knowledge, instrument of communication."
  -- Jean Debuffet

NESA's Visual Arts program stimulates intellectual and emotional growth in students who possess above average talent for art and have a passion to pursue art as a career choice. The making of art is characterized by an interaction of reason and emotion, of logic and creativity, of fact and feeling.  The VA program serves young artists who are alert, critical, introspective & receptive to challenging possibilities.
