In the visual arts the focus is on exploration and learning new techniques. Our students are encouraged to create and embrace their own unique style."
Middle School Art Teacher
The arts program provides a nurturing environment in which students are encouraged to explore visual communication through focused self-expression in two- and three-dimensional forms. Students gain hands-on experience with a broad range of materials and techniques. Students learn basic art history as they work on visual art projects that relate to periods being explored in other classes. During class, major museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art are accessed using the Internet, and students typically visit one or more museums in the course of the year.
