Visual Arts


Our Art Program, funded by the Mar Vista School Enrichment Group (MVSEG), focuses on the process of creating visual art and explores through demonstrations and hands-on laboratory style learning traditional and contemporary visual arts and artists. Student artists develop skills and techniques that expose them to wide ranging media from pencil, pastel and charcoal to watercolor and acrylics, as well as working with sculptural forms like collage, clay and recycled materials. A growing area of the program is in photographic and mixed media arts. Students learn art history, create innovative works of art and learn how to develop their observational skills and unique forms of self expression. The school year culminates with students experiencing the critical and curatorial process of creating a school wide museum exhibition. During the weeks the museum is installed, our proud student artists become their own museum-going public, which helps connect them even more to the larger, outside world!
