Visual Arts

  • The Visual Arts program offers courses in a sequential order. In Art I and II students develop skills with a wide range of materials used in drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, and other forms of visual production. The students learn the historical background of the styles of art they create. Critique is introduced as a way of articulating purpose and result as it relates to student work. In the more advanced elective courses, students enhance the previously learned skills and are also directed toward more in-depth work utilizing their own aesthetics, abilities, and process. AP Studio Art is offered to motivated upperclassmen who are interested in pursuing our most rigorous visual art course.
