Visual Arts

The visual arts program at Greensboro Day School helps students master the basic skills and fundamental techniques of art production while also building confidence and the ability to appreciate and think critically about art.

The visual arts are woven into our curriculum from the earliest grades. Students take visual arts classes throughout Lower and Middle School, with an option for Ceramics in eighth grade.

Upper school students can choose from a wide variety of electives such as Drawing and Painting, Ceramics, Design, Photography, and Filmmaking.

Whether they are working with a lump of clay, paint on a canvas, or pixels on a computer screen, our program provides students with an appreciation for the arts and a passion for creative expression.
