Studies in Studio Arts include traditional visual mediums: drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, fibers, and photography. These fine arts allow students to express themselves in deeply creative ways, while also breaking down, understanding, and applying artistic concepts such as color, form, line, shape, space, texture, and value in sophisticated ways.
Though many of these subjects are covered in traditional high school programs, few cover them in such depth. The studio arts program is also highly customizable, and driven by the wants and needs of our individual artists who create and pursue goals to develop their expressive capabilities through craft.
In addition to embarking on art discipline courses, studio artists will also learn about art history, portfolio development, and professional practices within the art career field. They gain a well rounded art education at WAACS in these areas to further their art endeavors after high school and beyond.
