Building connections with passion and creativity

Our students ignite their potential to think critically and independently through inspiring art experiences. They apply the creativity and innovative thinking that they develop through artworks that have value and cogency; building bridges between what they are studying in school and their life outside of school.

We believe the study of art enhances and rejuvenates the spirit. It makes us more aware of our ever-changing environment. Through the study of the visual arts, we learn that art records the history of people and their cultural identity.

The study of the visual arts offers students a connection to other people, other times and places, diverse cultures, as well as opportunities for interdisciplinary links to other fields of study and careers in advertising, architecture, commercial design, industrial design, fashion, as well as the motion picture industry. The total education of the whole child includes exploration of creative artistic solutions and immeasurably enriches student learning here at NBPS.

Visual Arts Curriculum

Lower School 

The program develops in students an appreciation for all forms of visual expression and gives students opportunities to explore a variety of artistic media.

Our students understand that different materials, techniques, media and processes all relate to communication in the visual arts. They learn to use the various structures, such as color, texture, sensory qualities, organizational principles and expressive features, to convey their ideas and feelings. Students also see how history, culture and the visual arts all influence one other.

Middle School

Students in Grades 6, 7, and 8 have the opportunity to learn art basics through exploration of multicultural connections and major trends in the history of art. This approach includes exploration of aesthetics, art criticism, art history and production in 2D painting and drawing, 3D sculpture and ceramics, and applied design.

High School

High School students explore foundational courses in 2D painting and drawing, 3D Ceramics and Sculpture, and Applied Design, including illustration, decorative arts and retail design. The curriculum is sequenced to encourage the study of art at an advanced level and allows students to develop college level skills in aesthetics, art criticism, art history and art creation.

Courses include Advanced Placement Portfolio, Advanced Placement Art History and International Baccalaureate classes.
