The Fine & Visual Arts Program at The Churchill School and Center begins in the elementary school, introducing students to materials and early concepts of the cultural importance of the arts. As students transition to the middle school, they further develop skills in the art studio. Additionally, students gain an exposure to and appreciation of art history. By the end of middle school, many students begin to identify the importance of art in their lives. As they enter high school at Churchill, students chose art as an elective course - a daily class further exploring their own artistic voices.
Many students who fit the Churchill student profile have an affinity for the fine and visual arts. In addition to learning the fundamentals, techniques, and concepts of art, our students also learn valuable skills that they can apply to their academic life and beyond such as creative problem solving, time management, self discipline, confidence, and self awareness along with many other life skills. Students are offered the opportunity to develop skills in drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, graphic design, illustration, computer graphics, fashion design, and many more disciplines.
