Visual Arts

The visual arts program at Elgin Academy gives students in primary, middle, and upper school the opportunity to express themselves through a sequential continuum of creative experiences. In addition to providing a foundation in the knowledge of art and the basic skills necessary to express themselves visually, classes provide an atmosphere in which students are encouraged to utilize intellectual inquiry and creative problem solving by becoming visual thinkers.

Students develop a new level of consciousness regarding individual perception through self-reflection. Visual art is an integral component of the intellectual, social and emotional growth of every child.
