Arts
From Junior Kindergarten to 12th Grade, the Collegiate visual arts program focuses on the development of the cognitive skills necessary for deciphering, discussing, and participating in the ever-changing cross-cultural conversation which informs the artistic process. The curriculum is designed to allow students to employ their imaginations and creative instincts while working with a wide variety of media and techniques. Additionally, it is infused with captivating content that provides endless opportunity for expanding problem solving, compositional construction and aesthetic decision-making skills. Throughout Collegiate, the visual arts studios are places in which each artist is encouraged to develop an individual style and creative vision by taking risks and learning from experiences as well as from teachers and peers.
"Apart from imparting formal skills of technique and design across media, the visual arts program at Collegiate is designed to foster an authentic sense of self; students learn who they are and what they want to say as makers going forward."
