Visual Arts

girls viewing filmstripThe Visual Arts Department offers a wide variety of classes that engage our students, capture their imaginations, and ignite their desire to connect with the world as creative and independent thinkers.   Our curriculum intentionally sustains an attachment to established disciplines and practices, while also introducing students to current concepts, techniques, practices, and technologies.  Our faculty is composed of highly skilled, sensitive, veteran teachers who have been or currently are practicing professional artists. We emphasize ideas and process, and are dedicated to teaching art making and critical thinking in concert.  At the same time, we see tactile work, artistic practice, and the liberty to experiment as indispensable. Visual Arts students develop awareness that art is to be understood in the framework of history and culture. It is our goal that through making art, students will gain understanding about the world and themselves, and an ability to communicate their ideas in multiple ways.
