Fine Arts

The Fine Arts curriculum focuses on the department's philosophy that every student has creative potential. We teach students how to use the elements and principles of design while developing an appreciation for the fine arts. In order to capitalize on a student's full potential the department provides a solid foundation in both two and three dimensional disciplines. The Fine Arts curriculum promotes visual literacy and encourages creative problem-solving skills in every student.

In the middle school, the curriculum is designed to give the students the opportunity to express their individuality while learning to work with several different materials. The students touch on a beginning experience of art making.

In high school, the students begin with a year long foundation course, Studio Art. This class is currently team taught with a 2-D and 3-D semester. After Studio Art students can choose from the other selected Fine Arts offerings.

"The one thing I found so unique about Villa was being part of a worldwide network of schools. My daughter participated in the Taiwan Exchange Program. She went to the Sacred Heart school of Taipei, Taiwan. She was there for three weeks and we in turn hosted several students at our home as part of a cultural exchange. We share a lot with other schools around the country and around the world."
