The visual arts program at St. Andrew's seeks to foster an understanding and appreciation of drawing, painting, ceramics, photography, and film, while also encouraging students to discover and pursue interests in any or all of these art forms, and to develop personally as adventurous, expressive, and creative individuals. Our visual arts courses provide both formal training and instruction in the theoretical, historical and cultural background of each discipline. This intensive training and instruction, combined with close contact with established faculty artists who are continually pursuing their own artistic practices, allows the student grow in their artistic understanding, creative capabilities, and tendency toward free expression. Our master-apprentice teaching model for the visual arts allows our students to gain a strong sense of the arts as a means for investigating and celebrating the world in which they live.
An additional fee may be charged for visual arts classes to help defray the cost of materials.
