Visual Arts

The visual arts department provides students with the opportunity to use a wide variety of media to develop their artistic voice through 2D design, 3D design, time based digital media and studio arts. Within these areas a variety of media and techniques are taught, including photography, drawing and painting, stained glass, ceramics, printmaking, sculpture, animation and video.

Visual arts students are encouraged to develop their unique vision in art and to construct an art portfolio that demonstrates both an exploration of their artistic expression and their individuality. This student-centered approach to art-making allows the young artist to look at the larger concepts of their work and enables them to make choices in the use of media.

Student art is displayed in a variety of locations on campus: Gilman Hall Gallery (located in the admissions lobby), Student Art Gallery (located in the visual arts department) and the Manchester Library & Learning Center (located on the second floor).

Off-campus exhibitions and partnership opportunities are offered throughout the year. Venues include The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, San Diego Museum of Art: Young Art, Museum of Contemporary Art: Extended School Program, San Diego County Fair and San Diego Art Institute: Youth Art.
