Dalton’s Visual Arts program is unique in its breadth and focus. We offer two dimensional, three dimensional, digital, and multi-media art courses. These courses develop visual perception, aesthetic judgment, and technical skills in a variety of media.
The visual arts curriculum enriches the students’ program with a genuine studio experience. Working with their teachers, students engage thoughtfully in the creative process. Faculty members guide students with Senior Initiatives in Visual Arts. Teachers assist students in preparing art portfolios for college admission. Some students attend art and architecture schools while others study art to broaden their liberal arts college experience.
All students are encouraged to experience an art course. No one is graded on talent but on effort, interest, and consistency of commitment.
