Self-expression takes many forms in our arts program: drawing, painting, pottery, sculpting and more. But art isn't restricted to art classes. We also integrate art throughout our curriculum, using it to enhance lessons and improve visual critical thinking skills.
We want our students to think in terms of images, as well as words, expressing themselves in every way possible. And, we also hope they come to appreciate the work of others, igniting a lifelong interest in art and leading them to embrace those experiences that can bring beauty and meaning into their lives.
Visual Arts for Grades K-4
We teach art appreciation as well as practical skills, such as lettering, poster making, balance, and design. Students are urged to examine their surroundings and notice differences, learn shading, drawing and perspective.
Visual Arts for Grades 5-8
Students in the Middle School have Visual Arts in a rotation for 9 weeks for five days a week. Students study technique, composition and design. Students will study mix media projects, while learning strong color usage. Art History and styles always play an important role.
Visual Arts for Grades 9-12
Students have the option to study Foundations of Art, Ceramics, Digital Photography, Yearbook, Sculpture, Painting, Drawing, Mixed Media and IB Visual Art.
