In Visual Arts, students are encouraged to explore deeper meanings in art and the world. Art is a powerful tool of expression, which is why we offer multiple ways for students to make a statement.
Here, students can study painting, drawing, design, and sculpture; they can explore technical and aesthetic challenges; venture into ceramics, or design their own fashion show as an Art Major. Take advantage of a personal year-round studio space and discover artistic passions — we have all the tools to help.
At Cheshire Academy, there are no prerequisites and no restrictions; we provide you with space, tools, and independence to work and grow both recreationally and studiously. Within our department, we encourage you to apply the visual arts contextually to the world around you. Drawing from both contemporary art and art history, you’ll develop an understanding of the elements and principles of art and design such as composition, color, and perspective.
Whether you wish to pursue art in college or simply need a creative outlet, we have the flexibility, resources and time to help you discover new talents. Importantly, you’ll develop more confidence in your abilities to express yourself in new and exciting ways.
