Visual Arts

The Middle School arts experience is rooted in experimentation. Students have the opportunity to explore materials, investigate themselves as storytellers, and hone their craft as artists.

Art in the Middle School is designed to foster the skills and dispositions necessary to foster creative thinking, encourage active problem-solving, and increase confidence in expressing original ideas.
