The Middle School art program, and art electives, provide opportunities for students to continue developing their problem-solving skills while also gaining exposure to newer media and alternative processes. Students are challenged to generate multiple ideas and solutions, develop and use higher-level thinking skills, and expand their awareness of art and design in everyday tools and techniques.
Students learn about art history and are also introduced to contemporary artist practices. In addition, they have the opportunity to engage with visiting artists who present their own work and assist with student projects. The art program builds on goals, work, and techniques from Lower School. 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.
