Middle School Visual Arts
Art classes in our Middle School offer an introduction to the elements and principles of art in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional formats. Students have the opportunity to work in a variety of traditional and digital media while exploring artistic themes within diverse historical and cultural contexts. Every project includes a component of self-reflection as our students learn to communicate their unique ideas to each other and make broader connections to the world around them.
Lower School Visual Arts
Innovation is borne out of identifying patterns, learning from mistakes and envisioning solutions. Our Lower School students are introduced to a wide variety of art media and learn about art history all while creating masterpieces of their own. Through arts education, we empower young learners with self-esteem, motivation, aesthetic awareness, creativity, and emotional expression, as well as social harmony and an appreciation for diversity.
At Severn, the arts are introduced at the Preschool level because we feel they provide students with unique opportunities to engage their creativity in a hands-on manner. Thus begins the process of creating a culturally aware person.
