Visual Arts

In the Visual Arts discipline, students will develop their facility with the techniques and processes of art as a means of expressing emotions and conceptual ideas. Although students may concentrate in one medium, students will be encouraged to try different artistic forms before selecting a concentration. Students in the Visual Arts are expected to find opportunities to display their art and participate in collaborative artistic opportunities throughout the Wood River Valley community.
