In the visual arts department, we seek to develop a deep understanding of skill, style, and history as it relates to the creation and interpretation of art.
The Charter Arts Visual Arts Department seeks to produce excellence in the visual arts through intensive training and the implementation of high standards. Presented as an academic, as well as artistic, pursuit, the visual arts curriculum will teach students to perceive connections between art and other subject areas. Students will build upon learned concepts with the intention of gaining mastery, concentration, a strong work ethic and discipline.
Message from Lorie Reinhard
Artistic Director, Visual Arts Department
On behalf of the Visual Arts Department at Charter Arts, I’d like to extend an invitation for you to learn more about the art education and experiences offered in our department.
The visual arts educational experience at Charter Arts is like no other in public education. The curriculum combines progressive traditional art training with a contemporary perspective. Visual arts students are rigorously trained in drawing, painting, sculpture, design, and educated in art history. Through practice, study, analysis, reading and research, they learn to apply intelligence, creativity, and discernment to the art they create. Opportunities to exhibit and compete exist for successful and dedicated students who share a passion for creating outstanding work. Our students develop the necessary skills and talent to thrive in competitive collegiate programs across the nation.
If you think the visual arts program may be a good fit for your child, please feel free to contact me, or visit with our faculty at one of our Open House evenings.
