Walk into the Fine Arts building and you will be enveloped in a busy, multi-color, casual, fun-loving and welcoming environment. After school, when students drop in to work on a project, there will likely be music, and always there is a buzz of conversation. With small classes, everyone can be productive and a sense of order prevails.
Highlights in the Visual Arts year include an open, multi-media presentation of students' AP Art portfolios and an indoor/outdoor gallery-style presentation in the spring. The event is mounted like a San Francisco gallery opening, including printed invitations and programs and a table of hors d'oeuvres. Students' art from all grade levels is displayed in the guest lobby of Founders Hall. The two-story Performing Arts Center lobby is designed with beautiful display space for student art and visiting art.
While competition isn't emphasized, student art has won awards — for example, a Priory student's work was recently included in the materials displayed by the College Board AP Arts program.
