CREATIVE & ENGAGING: Highland's Visual Art Department focuses on engaging all students in creative development. The visual arts provide space for all students to reflect, heal, question, explore, and express themselves.
STUDENT CENTERED: Each student develops a growing technical confidence rooted in how art media can be understood and then applied, as part of our personal philosophy that each student has a valuable voice to share. Our curriculum and our teachers invite students to find connecting points for practice, expression, and artistic development.
COURSES: Course offerings for next year include beginning and advanced level courses in ceramics, sculpture, drawing, painting, digital photography, beginning graphic design, and IB/DP visual art and design. Classes include lectures, study, demonstrations, research, reflection, and hands-on work. Advanced courses may be repeated for additional credits.
