Visual Arts

The Visual Arts Program helps students develop curiosity, creativity and the spirit of wonder. Each student learns to see and express reflections of the divine through the medium of visual arts.

By engaging in the creative process, students develop life skills such as perseverance, collaboration, critical thinking, analysis and problem solving. Students learn a deliberate process of planning, engaging in trial and error, participating and giving feedback in critiques and reflecting on their abilities and growth. They also study technique, skill, concept, expression and analysis.

Middle School art courses are designed to develop artistic confidence and serve as a foundation for future studies in visual arts. As students develop understanding of the elements and principles of art, they also make connections with other disciplines of study, especially with humanities. Through hands-on experiences with varied materials and techniques, students are encouraged to experiment and develop their problem-solving skills.

Reflection and self-evaluation are incorporated in every project and are important to the students’ growth and understanding of the artistic process.
