Our Fine Arts program established in 1997 implements a traditional, classical art program that helps students develop a strong foundation with basic skill sets they can use effective in the future in many different applications beyond the classroom. All classes feature more one-on-one teaching and direction where students are taught new subject matter step by step so they know how to create a new piece of artwork. Then, they practice the methods and techniques through various mediums and drawing/painting subject matters. Students are also encouraged to add their own sense of design and creativity once they have grasped the basic concepts. Each art class is a learning and creative process which reviews previous knowledge and the learning of new material. The goal is to help students create the art they have always wanted to create and learn life long skills through the process.
Instructors will always personalize lesson plans for each student and teach exactly the student is looking to learn or suggest a lesson plan based on the student’s current level and interests. Instructors can also help students build a strong art portfolio with a good range of artworks to show a well rounded art skills and works. Mediums that instructs can teach students to work with and develop a deep understanding of the fundamentals of fine art including color theory, line and shapes, creating the illusion of three dimensionality, perspective drawing, figure drawing, animal drawing, landscape drawing, and different kinds of painting. Mediums that students can work with include sketching pencils, different kinds of pastels, color pencils, watercolors, water soluble oil pastels, watercolor pencils, acrylics, oil painting, art markers, pen, and more.
Our teachers are always there for our students within the classroom or outside as their mentors. They are always happy to help them build IB/AP art portfolios, answer questions, or give suggestions when needed. As a school, we believe that the key to the future is in having innovative ideas and a sense of creativity. Therefore, we encourage all students to build strong fundamentals skills in the arts and then take it further with their own unique twist, so they can truly become their own, one-of-a-kind, artist.
