Upper School Visual Arts

Upper School Visual Arts

In addition to fulfilling their art requirement with courses in performing arts, Upper School students have the option to take Visual Art classes. A variety of classes are offered in both 3-dimensional and 2-dimensional mediums. Classes include ceramics (both functional and sculptural), drawing, painting, printmaking, and mixed media.

Both in and out of class, our students have produced exceptional work. Just walking through campus, one can see some of these quality pieces. Bright, beautiful paintings and drawings created in the Studio Art classes are posted right above the well-constructed, detailed clay formations made in the Ceramics classes right in the Atrium. They express perfectly the detail, effort, and skill that students put into the projects.
