The visual arts department at Seacrest gives students the opportunity to express themselves creatively. Beginning in Pre-Kindergarten, students attend art classes, but creativity and individuality is woven throughout our academic curriculum.
In the Lower School, students are required to take art and activities are an extension of work in the classroom. Students collaborate on group projects, cross-divisional projects with older students, and projects within the community. Students gain an appreciation for art history and the works of art masters.
As students move to the Middle School and Upper School, courses are designed to build on foundational studies and ignite and expand each artist's interest. Using drafting, rendering, graphic design, architectural design, 3-D projects, photography, mixed media, installation art, and interactive art, students acquire a rich understanding of the language of art and design. Students are encouraged to analyze case studies, look for cultural implications and social impact, and give voice through visual expression.
