Student artwork hangs in nearly every building on the CA campus. It’s not uncommon to see young artists inspecting the work of older students as they gain inspiration and ideas for their future creations.
At the annual All-School Arts Festival in Spring, every CA student is represented with at least one piece of art. More than 1,000 pieces of art are displayed, representing students in Pre-K through Grade 12.

Visual Arts by Division

List of 3 items.

  • Lower School

    Beginning in the Pre-Kindergarten, our young artists work with our experienced art teachers to learn and explore a range of mediums and art practices. Our philosophy is to expose them to the creative process through a thoughtful balance of play-based learning and building of skills.
  • Middle School

    Our Middle School artists are exposed to a range of art classes, and we encourage them to try as many disciplines as they can. In Grade Six, they take part in an arts rotation which includes studio art in two-dimensional and three-dimensional mediums. In Grades Seven and Eight, artists have an opportunity to try a variety of trimester electives, including studio art, graphic design, ceramics, photography, and film.
  • Upper School

    In Upper School, many artists begin to specialize in an area of their choice, while some artists continue to take full advantage of our diverse offerings. Artists that pursue visual arts at an advanced level may apply to the Senior Portfolio program, a renowned experience that allows them to create a body of work that culminates in a Senior exhibit in the Ponzio Arts Center Gallery.
