All year long, an abundance of student artwork has been on display all around campus. Currently this spring, visual art creations by St. Markers can be found in and around Taft Hall and throughout the corridors—particularly in the gallery space between the dining hall and the front reception area.
Art, whether in performance or in the gallery, represents a union of craft and expression. St. Mark’s students learn the language of art through skills acquisition in drama, music, and visual art.
We hope that through coursework in one or more arts courses, students will become more critical listeners, better informed viewers, and experienced in their chosen course of study. Across the St. Mark’s campus, art enhances life within the community: We learn about each other—as artists, as musicians, as actors, as friends—through what we do.
Currently on display in Taft Hall is an exhibit of ceramic vessels created by St. Markers. Veteran art teacher Aggie Belt assigned her students to address the theme of "cultural unity" through ceramics.
