The visual-arts program emphasizes the creative process and celebrates inquiry and expression through opportunities for students to explore themes and ideas with a wide range of materials. In Middle School, the art program builds on goals, work, and techniques from Lower School. Students learn about art history, and are also introduced to contemporary artist practices. In addition, they have opportunities to engage with visiting artists who present their own work and assist with student projects. Students continue to see themselves as capable artists with specific skills and develop a lifelong passion for the arts as a language of expression and discovery.
