Students will combine skills in drawing and painting with new discoveries in sculpture. Realism and imagination will inspire the creation of unique works of art, and provide opportunities to work with a variety of 2D and 3D art materials, including pencil, pastels, watercolors, acrylics, clay, wood, wire, plaster, and more.
All of our students explore the Michener galleries weekly, and use works in the exhibitions as take-off points for their own art making. They also work from photographs, observation, and imagination, and glean inspiration from famous artists throughout history.
Michener classes keep Art at the Heart of Education with individualized attention, small classes, frequent gallery tours, and master teachers as hallmarks of the exceptional arts programs. Through exposure to a variety of art forms and art materials, all courses encourage the development of new skills and build confidence in creative expression. The Michener’s permanent collections balanced with changing exhibitions provide ongoing opportunities for looking at and learning about a variety of art forms in new ways. Student work is exhibited in the Education Gallery throughout the year.Faculty member Andrea Thompson
