Deep Understanding, Personal Growth, and Academic Success Through Art

Within the walls of state-of-the-art studios on both campuses, art is an experience that enriches, challenges, and inspires. The expansive, sunlit classroom is an incubator of creativity, holding figure drawing and painting sessions. 

In the dedicated, three-dimensional design studios at the Middle and Upper Schools, you’re invited to think bigger, crafting large-scale sculptures and functional ceramics. Through this hands-on exposure, you’re pushed to explore intricate ideas, reflect on your place within the broader community, and master the technical prowess needed to bring a vision to life. 

With slide lectures, insights from visiting artists, and immersive field trips, our students emerge as both artists and as thoughtful individuals ready to engage with and shape the world around them.
