The Arts

As students are exposed to a multitude of different types of media in their daily lives, art courses can help them navigate the ever unfolding context of contemporary culture and technology. The arts allows an opportunity for students to understand and find meaning through creating and analyzing different creative disciplines and methods.


The Visual Arts department is rooted in the school’s vision that the discovery of personal meaning and the growth of individual identity can emerge from the rigors of study, of student centered inquiry and the development of a sensitive eye, a discerning mind and skillful hand.
