Visual Arts

Put your art in exhibitions at school and in the community.

Visual Arts in Middle School:
Paint, draw, sculpt. Learn about artists! Visit galleries and museums. Have fun experimenting, making recycled art, making masks for Halloween.


Visual Arts in High School:
What do you want to say? What visual communication fits your story? Draw, paint, sculpt, print, build, disassemble, and rebuild.


IB Visual Arts course:
What is art? What is not? Why? How can I make my art get noticed? Pick your medium, your style, focus your passion. Get your IB Diploma or a certificate, get credit towards college, create a beautiful portfolio to apply to study art and earn scholarships. Numerous students who have completed this course have garnered impressive scholarships at the top art schools in the nation. Among them are a $60,000 Presidential Scholarship at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, a $40,000 RISD Entering Freshman Art Scholarship (only five awarded per year), a $60,000 Maryland Institute College of Art Merit Scholarship, a $70,000 Recognition Scholarship from School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and scholarships at Carnegie Mellon, and UCLA Art School, to name a few.


 

masks 2masksThe papier mache masks shown here are the final art project completed by our 7th graders, choosing among molds of fish, bear, cat, horse, or duck. The students then looked at a variety of images to identify both realistic and cartoon options. Their teacher, Sheila Miles inspired them to feel free to make “fantasy creatures” if they wished. Once dry, they were painted with acrylic, and some were decorated with glitter. Best of all, this project is one completed in only two days!
