Upper School Visual Arts Curriculum

The Upper School curriculum continues artistic development through a variety of classes that encourage students to further cultivate individual artistic voices. Conversations about contemporary artists help students understand the artistic process, while explorations in traditional, multimedia and 3D techniques guide the development of each student portfolio. Artistic risks taken in Lower and Middle Schools are actively nurtured through group critiques, gallery exhibitions and unique museum partnerships.
