Students examine prehistoric cave paintings through and up to postmodern pieces, analyzing them with regard to the time and events that influenced the artist. Working with art in this way adds a rich layer of understanding of the political and social movements that shape nations. Students connect the visual image to the poetic image to the historical image and circle back again, broadening and deepening their perspective of the world around them.
Our students have distinguished themselves in literary contests, in classroom seminars, and in community service. We believe that it is the systematic integration of art and art history throughout our comprehensive curriculum that has developed their thoughtful responses to school and society.
