Students are encouraged to express themselves in many different types of media including: drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, pottery, digital, sequential, art history and more. They are introduced to the fundamental concepts of the creative process and encouraged to utilize critical thinking skills and engage in creative problem-solving to find visual solutions to given assignments. In addition to daily classroom experiences, students participate in clubs, community events and exhibits. Students have prepared portfolios and been accepted to RISD, NCSU College of Design, Pratt, Parsons, SCAD, ECU, and many more schools.
