Visual Arts

Upper School visual arts have a multifaceted goal of building confidence in artistic competence. Through practical experience and academic critique by nurturing individual expression through multi-cultural and interdisciplinary studies, the department encourages aesthetic literacy through the study of historic and modern modes. The visual arts curriculum cultivates a spiral approach to visual perception and development of skills from early childhood to young adulthood. Students emerge from these studies with first-hand experience in self-expression and communication through artistic disciplines and with an aesthetic appreciation for similar expressions of others.
