Creativity and original thoughts are stressed in Middle School visual arts, while students are also required to demonstrate an understanding of concepts and techniques. Continuing with the basic principles learned in the Lower School, students further develop their knowledge of art elements using a variety of media, including tempera, oil and water paint, charcoal, clay and more. Lessons learned in Class Six and Seven are reinforced in Class 8 when projects become more self-directed.
Throughout the school year, student artwork is displayed in the Virginia Stuller Tatham Fine Arts Center. We also hold annual art shows—check the arts calendar to make sure you don't miss the next exhibit.
