The visual arts department values each student as they discover their unique expression and interest in art. Every course is taught by experienced and talented professionals in the arts who, by their enthusiasm and expertise, not only inspire their students, but also nurture lifelong creativity and innovation.
Bishop’s Visual Arts Department provides student-centered, hands-on curriculum. The School offers opportunities for drawing, painting, printmaking, stained glass, photography, silk screening, ceramics, mixed media, airbrush, textiles, 3D printing, laser cutting, film making, animation, virtual reality, web-design, graphic design, illustration and interdisciplinary approaches to art.
Bishop’s partners with local art museums and galleries to provide in-person and virtual exposure to visual art. Student art is displayed and shown both on- and off-campus in exhibitions, publications and competitions. Art clubs are held after school, which provide open studio time, skill tutoring and a social atmosphere for art making. Eye on Visual Arts (EVA) is a student-run art publication for art to be seen and ideas to be shared. Visiting artists join classes to connect making art to professional careers. Alumni also join us in the studios to share their experiences and how Bishop’s art education impacted their lives.
