The Upper School studio arts program features an extensive range of trimester courses. From foundational two-dimensional and three-dimensional courses to advanced studies, students achieve higher levels of analytical and conceptual thinking while being grounded in the fundamentals of technique.
There is something for everyone. Students may explore the full variety of offerings or focus on an area of technical interest. In all cases students are guided into and through the unique realm of creative processing making them more aware of their sensory perceptions and developing their analytical abilities. Guidance is available for students interested in pursuing a career in the visual arts. Students who are not pursuing visual arts but have taken many classes, are also encouraged to prepare portfolios for college admissions; this strengthens the college application by demonstrating a broad scope of interests.
