In the Walnut Hill Visual Art Department, students master fundamental artistic concepts while exploring varied techniques and mediums. Student artists acquire foundational skills and hone their creative impulses through personal practice, faculty guidance, and exposure to the work of peers. Classes ranging from drawing, ceramics, and painting to photography and apparel design are taught by faculty mentors who are also professional artists, attuned to the continual evolution of the arts world. Throughout the department, process is valued, focus is balanced by fun, and experimentation is celebrated. In addition to producing a portfolio of work, purposeful artistic practice allows students to build greater self-awareness and confidence, and develop an open mind-set crucial to their success in future pursuits.
