Visual Arts

TheĀ Visual ArtsĀ program at ChiArts begins with foundational instruction, including an emphasis upon essential art making skills and understandings, and progresses toward more complex concepts, including critical analysis of visual culture and the fostering of independent work. The program challenges and empowers students to develop their own aesthetic as each matures into an innovative artist and critical thinker.

Students of all abilities may interview for admission into the Visual Arts program. ChiArts recognizes the need to provide opportunities for students who have had prior instruction in the visual arts and students who have not had prior training but demonstrate strong natural abilities and a desire to learn.
