Our teachers encourage students to explore their perceptions in ways that produce fundamentally personal artistic statements.
Based in the classics and broad in scope, the Fine Arts Department allows students to create and develop basic skills while gaining a solid background in art history. Seventh and eighth graders take required courses in painting and drawing and in ceramics and sculpture. In the upper grades, students have the opportunity to dig deeper through a range of electives that include painting and drawing, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, photography and independent study.
