Welcome to Art


Here we truly study art from the inside out. We study the act of creating, and the practices that promote creativity. In our Fine Art courses, students create work individually and collaboratively. They read and write about art, sketch, and examine the meaning, aesthetics and intention of each art genres. Students are introduced to the vocabulary of art, and practice responding critically to their own and others’ works. Through creative inquiry and investigation with a variety of materials and techniques, students connect to the world, present and past, by creating new and unique art inspired by their own personal observation, experience, beliefs and intentions. We include art from various cultural/geographical viewpoints in most assignments. Life-long problem-solving skills are developed through these creative practices.
