Visual Arts

“We shall not cease from exploration
And at the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.”
- T.S. Eliot

Lower School

Baldwin's Lower School Art curriculum takes both a studio and academic based approach to combine creativity and problem-solving skills that are essential to growth and exploration in young children.  An introduction to the conceptual, graphic and visual language in art helps students understand art as a meaningful tool to reinforce skills across academics as well as forge their own paths and voices in creativity and expression.  As children manipulate a paintbrush or cut and paste, their fine motor skills develop and improve. When children experiment with different materials, they dabble in science. When children take pride while they are creating, art helps boost self-confidence.  A key objective is to provide creative curriculum and themes, technical development and engaging opportunities that will ignite a personal passion for every student in art class.

Middle School

Students in Middle School Art will continue to build upon their exploration and discovery taken from the Lower School as well as anticipate the exciting diverse opportunities in the Upper School. Students will investigate a variety of media including drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, photography and digital imagery to establish an understanding of the elements and principles of design. Students collaborate with each other as they tackle complex visual problems, foster an understanding of authentic communication, give and receive constructive criticism and develop analytical skills that will benefit them in the art room and beyond.

Upper School

Perceptual painting, imaginative sculpture, deep responses to image-making concepts through photography, a blend of timeless craftsmanship and new technologies in jewelry and the juxtaposition of arguably the oldest art form to express contemporary experience in the ceramics studio lead our students to these greater questions of what and how we know, feel and communicate. In addition, the art history classroom provides a true interdisciplinary exploration.
