Visual Arts

The goal of the Visual Arts department is to develop students’ perception, building an awareness of media, design, critical thinking, creativity and craftsmanship within the context of a formal background in the elements and principles of art. We cultivate a strong understanding of visual arts across cultural and disciplinary boundaries.

Our belief in the importance of children’s art is shown by the display of their artwork. The exhibits in the hallways and in the George R. A. Johnson ’59 Gallery contribute to a stimulating, child-centered school atmosphere, reinforcing the students’ motivation and interest in the arts.
