Student Work

Students make their own aesthetic and media choices while thematically exploring/researching historical precedence, contemporary artists, and developing skills in a variety of approaches to artmaking. Assignments are open-ended, jumping off points, that give the necessary structure for developing a cohesive body of work.
Research: Students are exposed to contemporary artists, current trends in artmaking, relevant concepts and techniques, and historical movements. They then document this research in their sketchbooks looking for patterns of interest/influence. Once synthesized, students create a sketch proposal and decide on a chosen medium for their finished artwork.
Installation: More important than a grade, students earn the satisfaction of visually communicating their thoughts and feelings in a public venue. This may happen in a traditional gallery exhibition and opening reception or informally pinned up in school hallways or permanently adhered to the wall in the form of a mural or tile work.
