Upper School Visual Art

Upper School Visual Art courses introduce students to two-dimensional composition and materials, covering drawing and composition with an emphasis on expression and drawing from still life. Students also learn painting, primarily in acrylic on paper and wood, where works vary in technique, size and style.

Ceramics Students learn basic techniques of glazing and hand building in clay while exploring 3-D design challenges and artistic expression. DA also offers a mixed media course that experiments with nontraditional and experimental materials and methods. 

Intermediate/Advanced Art is available for Upper School art students who have a strong desire to learn more sophisticated techniques. In addition to developing visual concepts, the course gives students the foundation to continue on to AP Studio Art. Portfolio Studio Art is offered to students who are deeply committed to pursuing art, possibly as a career.
