In the Upper School, the focus remains on process, but skill-oriented courses also are offered, such as watercolor painting, oil painting, jewelry making, design technology, mosaics, ceramics, photography, sculpture, and fiber art. At least six visual arts courses are offered concurrently. Juniors and seniors can take Art Studio as a major subject. This course meets daily throughout the entire school year and is designed both for the student who wishes to prepare a portfolio for art school acceptance as well as for young artists who would like to further their skills and appreciation of the visual arts for more personal reasons.
Studio artists may also enroll in AP Studio Art as a junior in preparation for submission of an AP portfolio. Trips to either the Museum of Modern Art or the Metropolitan Museum in New York City are taken each year. At the end of the school year, a week-long art show displays the breadth and depth of student projects.
