Visual Arts & Media
The visual arts curriculum at Kinkaid is rich and diverse, building upon fundamentals and allowing students to explore multiple mediums with guidance and encouragement.
- Introduction to Visual Arts
- Drawing & Painting
- Graphic Design
- Mixed Media
- Advanced Portfolio Development
Emphasis is placed on “photographic seeing,” the unique properties of photographic images, and the effective use of a single-lens reflex camera. Advanced students explore alternative processes, large format cameras, toy cameras, mixed media, and photo silk-screening, all to build a more personal style.
Lower School Art
The Lower School art curriculum is centered on providing authentic, choice-based artistic experiences for students of all ages. The emphasis is on creative problem solving, media exploration and personal expression.
Elementary art instruction is geared toward providing a cohesive studio foundation as well as developing the student’s artistic interests. Lower School students of all ages are encouraged to explore different types of expression through art, and they have several opportunities to work with visiting artists or to participate in master classes to develop new skills.
