Visual Arts

The arts remain an integral part of our students’ learning, encouraging them to think critically and take risks. The Expect More Capital Campaign for Every Girl provided the opportunity to relocate and expand our Visual Arts program into a dedicated space on the second floor. The three classrooms were designed specifically for the unique requirements of painting, drawing, ceramics, photography and more.

Graphic Design and Photography Arts

Students interested in learning graphic design arts have access to all of the Adobe Creative Suite programs, including Photshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, InDesign and PremierPro. These programs are available to students on their personal computers.

Additionally we offer:
  • Two Form Labs 3D printers in the Digital Innovation Space that we use in the design class.
  • We have a Canon Pro-100 printer for digitally printing photos as well as a scanner.
  • We have 4 DLSR cameras for students to use who qualify financially to rent a camera from the school , everyone else must provide her own camera.
