Visual Arts

While some students come to the school with extensive visual arts experience, others have never picked up a pencil before. All learn in a dynamic setting to develop their observational skills and a personal voice through a variety of media.

Courses range from the introductory level in Photography, Sculpture, Ceramics and Studio Art, through the AP level in Studio Art and Art History. Some students elect to pursue a single topic or medium in depth through independent study, once they have completed basic courses. Many students prepare portfolios as part of their application to liberal arts colleges or to specialized art schools such as RISD, University of Chicago, and Alfred University. The courses are demanding; the atmosphere is collaborative and supportive.

On canvas or paper, using a potter’s wheel or camera, St. Markers are encouraged to give free rein to their artistic side, and to bring a critical and appreciative eye to the world around them.
