“God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good.” – Genesis 1:31
In Genesis we learn that the Creator, God, has made us in his own image. Therefore, cultivation of the language of visual art is fundamental for the full development of an educated young person.
In the Grammar School, all students have a weekly studio art class throughout the year. Students are introduced to basic art concepts and skills. Varied projects give opportunity for engagement and exploration with many different mediums. Students create a portfolio that they bring home at the end of the school year.
Logic School students, like Grammar school students, have a weekly studio art class through the year that challenges students to expand and develop their craft. Visual literacy is the overarching theme throughout these two years. Projects involve experiments in perspective, color, light, printmaking, and sculpting. Students are exposed to examples of master works and artists. Students again create a portfolio that they bring home at the end of the school year.
Rhetoric school students have the opportunity to explore specific media in more depth and to develop a personal voice through their art. Students choose from semester long courses that vary from year to year such as: Drawing 1, Painting 1, Drawing 2, Painting 2, Ceramics, Printmaking, Photography, and more. There are opportunities for advanced level courses and portfolio development through independent studies.
