Our 2D art courses teach the "language" of visual thought and expression using a variety of techniques, materials, and mediums. Students produce drawings, paintings, and prints with a focus on the fundamentals of composition, design, color theory, modeling of form, and the illusionistic creation of space.
Students at all age levels are given the opportunity to participate in 2D art, and once students get to the upper school level, they can choose between a photography or studio art course path to build upon their existing skills. All classes are designed to enrich student appreciation for their own and others’ artistic achievements.
Teaching our youngest learners about the arts is important because it helps build fine motor skills, develop problem solving and critical thinking, and provides opportunities to learn about various cultures, to expand their creativity, and to build confidence.- Amber Stautzenberger, Early Childhood Art Teacher
