The Middle Years Visual Arts Program offers students the opportunity to experience the exciting world of visual arts through exploration of two-dimensional and three-dimensional techniques in drawing, painting, printmaking, mixed media, ceramics, and sculpture using a variety of materials. The program fosters a strong understanding of the elements and principles of art and design, allowing students to create work that exhibits their art-making skills. Building these skills and enhancing the creative process is the major focus of this program. Students are challenged to achieve proficiency in visual art, both technically and conceptually, and study art history as it relates to various cultures. Opportunities to integrate with other arts and academic areas result in exciting multi-disciplinary work that reflects “real world” art-making processes.
