At Whitefield Academy, the arts faculty inspires students to create sincere and significant work while recognizing the beauty of self-expression through the arts. Believing that all students have natural artistic ability waiting to be developed, instructors encourage these young artists to discover and cultivate their God-given creativity.
Beginning in the Lower School, students receive weekly instruction in visual art with a focus on both experiential learning as well as exposure to art history, renowned artists and their work, and the elements of art. Students continue with visual art in the Middle School during fifth and sixth grades and then move on to arts electives of their choosing. With extensive offerings at the Upper School level, students may pursue areas of interest and continue to AP Studio Art.
