Visual Arts

Visual Arts classes at Hun teach students to think like artists: to explore the world with a sense of curiosity, to seek innovative solutions to problems, and to cultivate an outlet for creative self-expression.

Did you Know?

Each year, Fine Arts teacher David Bush takes AP and Honors Studio Art students on a weeklong art retreat. The trip provides students with exposure to a culture different from their own, where they can explore art and individuality through travel and observation. 

Visual Arts courses provide access to both practical and hands-on experiences, and an opportunity to learn through reading, observing, and writing. The goals are to develop reasoning, offer thought and information behind judgment, and give imagination a place to flourish.
 

For example, students can learn about the computer programs used by architects and engineers, and about design process in a CAD class, and then design and 3D print their own object using that process. Or students can take the advanced studio art class and learn about art from other cultures, and then take a trip to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico during spring break on a journey of exploration through writing, drawing, and independent art projects.

Visual Arts students come away from the program inspired to create their own works, and with an appreciation for the kinds of art they've explored.
