Current research in education reveals a dynamic shift from the previous "Information Age" to our current "Conceptual Age". As a result of this shift, skills, experience, and confidence in the visual arts is becoming increasingly essential for our students’ future success, both personally and professionally. Our courses in drawing, painting, photography, graphic design, video production, animation, and ceramic sculpture train individuals to utilize their own creative resources, often not stimulated within more traditional academic coursework.
The Visual Arts Program has been designed to help students discover creative inspiration, visualize the world around them with skill and personal reflection, and through dedicated study, introspection, and risk-taking, realize a unique, satisfying joy and new-found confidence. While the art courses are rigorous and challenging, most students find them relaxing and a welcome stress reliever during their demanding school day. The Weston High Art Department is comprised of experienced artist/teachers, each dedicated to improving their courses and developing their own personal work.
