Visual Arts

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.
