Fostering creative thought is one of the core elements in the visual art program. Students begin their artistic journey in junior kindergarten and continue to experience the power of art in Lower, Middle and Upper Schools. Artist-teachers guide students by offering compelling, hands-on studio projects that emphasize visual literacy and the foundations of art.
Our teachers are active as both working artists and educators. Their approach to teaching engages students and encourages globalized, visionary thought. Student artwork is celebrated and shared with the community in campus-wide exhibit spaces.
Our visual art facilities include five teaching studios, an outdoor raku pit, darkroom, ceramics lab, digital media lab and woodworking facility. The John Almquist Gallery
, a professional exhibition space on campus, features the work of faculty, students and visiting artists.
