St. Stephen's Episcopal School Visual Arts program offers a dynamic and varied foundation in beginning and advanced level art courses.
The Visual Arts courses include full credit Visual Studies classes (beginner to advanced), and half credit classes in Ceramics, Graphic Design, Photography and Digital Imaging. At each course level students learn to build the skills and techniques needed to develop a broad understanding and appreciation for visual language and design. The goal of the faculty is to identify, encourage, and develop the creative talents possessed by each student, while promoting visual analysis, creative problem-solving, and critical thinking skills through hands-on activities. Students are also encouraged to develop a sense of personal style and expression through the study of history and culture, as well as a global understanding of the visual world in which we live.
