We spread the field of presentation to the society to cultivate our art and design skills
Our creation and presentation is not only on campus. We develop various projects of art and design at local community as we live together in the community. Students consciously send their message to the society and play central roles in proceeding the projects. Those efforts develop their planning, managing and also socializing skills as well as creative abilities.
