We, the art faculty, see our mission within the school as the whole-child fostering of hands-on skills, aesthetics and appreciation, autonomy, and creativity. Our graduates, who take advantage of all or most of our program, should leave the school having achieved a strong visual literacy. We aim to inspire, encourage and challenge our students.
We believe that direct manual involvement in doing and making art provides a crucial complement to the building of analytic skills. Students often express their gratitude for the opportunity to spend a part of their day on art activities which can be just as challenging as those offered by other departments, but which use hearts and hands as well as brains.
