The Visual Arts at JPII
The ability to interpret the world visually is an important skill and useful across all academic disciplines,. Our goal is to teach students to see their world. There are many visual arts courses to choose from and no matter what your ability, you are welcomed and encouraged to take art classes.
This course introduces students to a variety of media and design concepts with a strong emphasis on drawing and art history.
Students explore techniques in acrylic, watercolor and printmaking.
This course focuses on skills in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, with an eye toward creating both commercial and fine art digital work.
Students experiment with sculpture using wire, clay, papier mache, found objects, and more.
Students are challenged by more complicated subject matter and advanced techniques using pencil, charcoal and pastel.
This is an independent, student-driven and designed course for advanced and motivated art students looking to create a cohesive body of work.
