When students in the Art in Design class at The Hun Middle School build boats, the watercraft are not small, and they are not just for show. After weeks of working on the boats, which are designed to hold one, or even two, middle schoolers, students set sail on Stony Brook, on the edge of campus, and enjoyed the fruits of their labor.
Arts education teaches that the inspiration of an artist springs from the sum of life experiences and from the various frameworks of history and values in our backgrounds. It is important for students to develop an understanding and appreciation for the arts within their own, as well as other, cultures.
The arts contribute to increased self-awareness and one’s own capacity for contribution to the larger community of humanity. Fine 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.
The Hun School of Princeton is an independent, coeducational, private day and boarding college preparatory school. Student-centered, hands-on learning prepares students for the global community in which they will live and work.
