The Upper School
At the Upper School, students are encouraged to take foundational classes that expose them to a variety of media before pursuing more advanced areas of study. Upper School faculty stress the importance of developing technical skill as well as personal voice through in-depth study into a variety of media. We offer courses in drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, wood, metal and stone sculpture, jewelry, digital and media arts, as well as opportunities to collaborate across disciplines. Projects are designed to maximize creative problem solving, meaning-making, and collaboration. From introductory classes to advanced, students are encouraged to submit their work for exhibition and publication, as well as document their progress through visual journals.
