Woodward student painting with teacher

Upper School

Our program embraces a broad range of visual arts—drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, and jewelry-making. Students are taught by talented, dedicated instructors who provide them with individual attention in studio facilities that are the equal of college art programs. Art students learn to think creatively, use self-expression, and to evaluate, critique, and exhibit their work. Students enjoy travel opportunities to epicenters of the arts like New York City and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Visiting artists come to campus to demonstrate, lecture, and give workshops. In the spring, art students take part in Experience the Arts Day, a joyful, outdoor celebration of the arts. Our graduates go on to some of the most celebrated art schools in the region and the nation, including The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Rhode Island School of Design, Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), NYU - Tisch School of the Arts, and California Institute of Art.
