Visual Art students enjoy the benefits of a broad studio based education—learning the importance of observation, technique, concept development, and critical thinking. Creating works of art in a diversity of media, students progress building on the technical and conceptual base from the year before. The AP portfolio occurs in junior or senior year, as students prepare for university studies and careers in the arts.
Students leave this program able to engage in 'creative discourse', with an active vocabulary and understanding of how to make art, critique it, and write about it. Student artwork hangs all over the school. The studio spaces are open and inviting. Middle and Upper School students can often be found in the studios working during their free time.
Students have exhibited work at The Bruce Museum in Greenwich, The Katonah Museum of Art, Pequot Library in Fairfield, as well as participating in local and national competitions.
Alumni have gone on to successful careers as:
Animators, Architects, Art Historians, Art Educators, Curators, Filmmakers, Gallerists, Game Designers, Graphic Designers, Interior Designers, Installation Artists, Media/TV Artists, Painters, Photographers, Printmakers, Sculptors, Sound Engineers, Web Designers
