Beaux Arts: Visual Arts

Convent & Stuart Hall offers a rich and varied K–12 Arts Education. Our Visual Art Department develops students’ creative potential, encouraging them to be versatile, resourceful and reflective while preparing them to be future artists, designers and problem solvers.

The Visual Art Department is committed to serving a generalist curriculum that encompasses the fundamental disciplines and resources of the visual arts. Each student is educated not only in specific disciplines, but also in the complex interrelationships of all visual vocabularies. The visual art curriculum lends to the acquisition of communication skills, the development of critical perspective and the ability to work with a variety of materials and art medias.

Throughout their K–12 arts training, students become socially aware, historically grounded, creative practitioners. They are taught to be critical analyzers of the world of contemporary visual communications, art and the culture at large. In a world with increasing creative demands, students prepared in a strong education in art and design alongside broad experience of art making and sharing offer something unique to the greater community and to the world.

On May 8, 2021, Convent & Stuart Hall families arrived on campus for The Heart of Art festival, a daylong art-making event featuring four local Artists in Residence, who each designed a temporary art installation with the support of student apprentices.

Head of Stuart Hall High School Tony Farrell explains how students tackled a design challenge to fill an open space with a mural.
