Visual Arts at The Woodward School
Visual Arts
Woodward’s Visual Arts Program is a core aspect of the school's strong college preparatory program and educates students in grades 6 through 12 in an inspiring, creative arts space. 

The Visual Arts Program at Woodward focuses on guiding young artists to develop strong fundamental skills and 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. 

May 2021 – The Juniors of the Woodward National Arts Honor Society created an exhibit titled “Under the Sea.”  The theme of this art show is to draw attention to the enormous amount of plastic in our oceans and how that plastic is impacting sea life. Watch the video for a tour of the exhibit. 

Middle School
The Middle School Art Program provides students with a strong foundation in the elements and principles of visual art. Students develop skills in foundational 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.

Upper School
The Upper School visual arts program supports 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.
