The visual arts faculty believes that art is an intellectual process. The program teaches skills and concepts through a series of rigorous, sequential courses, beginning with a comprehensive Foundation in Art course and culminating with AP Studio Art: Drawing, AP Studio Art: 2-D Design, and AP Studio Art: 3-D Design. Studio assignments are often placed within the context of historical and contemporary art movements. Through regular , formal critiques, students develop the aesthetic awareness and the critical judgement to analyze and develop their work to its maximum effectiveness. students emerge with both the ability to produce conceptually sophisticated work and the capacity to articulate their ideas with clarity.
