Visual Art

Philosophy

The Swift School’s Visual Arts Program develops self-confidence, brings out creativity, and promotes higher-level thinking in all of our students.

Learning Process

Lower Division
In the Lower Division, students are exposed to a wide array of studio arts, such as drawing, painting, sculpture, weaving and printmaking. They learn about various artists and periods of art history, as well as other cultures. Cross-curricular projects are created in each grade to provide a link between the arts and the academic classroom.

Middle School
In Middle Division, students continue to build upon their artistic knowledge. 2-dimensional art and 3-dimensional art are produced. More time is provided for creating, and more elaborate pieces emerge.

Presentation

You will find students' works of art throughout our campus. An art show in early Spring showcases the students projects throughout the year.

"There are not enough walls in our school to display the amount of amazing artistic creations produced within." - Lynn Kaplin, Art Instructor
