"The object isn't to make art, it's to be in that wonderful state which makes art inevitable."
— Robert Henri
In the Visual Arts, students explore themes, learn to use different techniques (such as drawing, painting, printmaking, carving, assembling, etc.), make use of a wide variety of materials (pencil, graphite, charcoal, pastels, paint, linoleum, plaster, etc.) to create personal images.
Through their work, students will gain a better understanding of the creative process behind visual communication. They will learn to transmit messages through art.
In conjunction with their creative progression, students will develop their critical judgment and their aesthetic awareness through examining images by artists throughout history and through sharing, and appreciating each other’s work.
We look forward to meeting the next generation of sculptors, painters, thinkers, and creators!
