Inspiring Creativity

At Notre Dame, we believe that the Fine and Performing Arts are both a creative and an academic pursuit. By creating, students learn to appreciate the creative process, to solve problems, to respect others’ forms of expression, and to work in groups. The Arts faculty consider the development of imagination, creativity, and aesthetic judgment to be essential complements to the critical thinking skills developed in other disciplines.
