Learn, Critique and Create
The diverse Visual Arts program encompasses both traditional and modern media studies. As a Lower School student, you will learn about the elements of design: line, shape, color, texture, form and space. From there, you will begin to study art vocabulary as well as the proper use of tools and miscellaneous materials.
Projects and activities help foster artistic growth in conjunction with practical instruction. Class discussion and careful examination of objects, pictures and nature are crucial elements to the Visual Arts program. Lower-School students will build skills that help them judge and appreciate the work of recognized artists, their peers' works and their own.
The Middle-School Visual Arts program focuses on fine-tuning skills and applying them in preparation for public displays of work. As an Upper School student, you will use everything you have learned to create original, self-directed works of art. If you are interested in pursuing art beyond high school, art instructors will aid you in developing a portfolio for college admissions.
