Exploring identity through art, from recent events and the distant past
Gordon visual art program is designed to present students with a set of experiences that develop capability with a range of art media. Students work in the visual art studios, two spaces in which they learn-by-doing with assignments in a multiplicity of disciplines. They draw, paint, make prints, build sculptures and three-dimensional pieces, create ceramics of many types, sew, dye, and weave fabrics.
These studios supply a structured environment that supports the independent problem solving and creative thought required by art making. The program spirals through the years, building skills and content knowledge, as well as confidence and connection.
