Visual Arts

Our visual arts program develops our students’ talents and abilities at all levels. While they learn the fundamentals of art, explore the principles of design, and study the history of art, our visual artists learn to express themselves creatively.

When they’re not in the studio, our student artists access local museums, attend lectures by visiting artists, and tour exhibits in the Hance Family Gallery.

Lower School Art

Stacy UtleyUpper School Art Teacher

I've noticed that art at Country Day is not confined to the work our students make in the studios. You see it around campus in the murals and artwork of teachers, and in the framed works of notable artists. Art is in our library, cafeteria, gathering spaces, and green spaces. The pieces are as diverse as art can be and they are interwoven into every aspect of this campus. You can't help but notice and appreciate it.”
