Woodward’s Visual Arts Program complements the school's strong college preparatory program that educates students in grades 6 through 12 in an inspiring, freshly renovated space at Wesner Hall Art Center.
The Visual Arts Program at Woodward focuses on guiding young artists to develop a visual language all their own. Students gain a sense of self, while developing an understanding of art making practices, art history, and contemporary art issues. The program provides unique opportunities for freedom of expression in an all girls' environment.
Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth grade students are all enrolled in vigorous art courses as part of their required curriculum.
The Middle School art program provides students with a strong foundation in the visual elements and principles of art. Students enrolled in middle school art courses develop skills in life drawing, and become increasingly proficient in painting, printmaking, sculpture, and mixed media. The Middle School art curriculum integrates art history and contemporary art into every project.
Art I, II, III; Painting and Drawing I, II, III; Advanced Art; Photography
The Upper School visual arts program was developed to support the creativity of the individual artist and her interests. With the background of visual arts training provided in the Middle School, students are guided to build stronger connections in specific media or styles. If this is the first time a student has taken a visual arts course, introductory courses are offered to help students build individual aesthetic, and allow them to gain increasing confidence in the art making process.
