I.M. Terrell's Department of Fine Art engages apprentices learn how to examine the Human Condition by activating the creative process in an interdisciplinary studio environment. We offer a very personal environment which nurtures growth, individuality, and failure-as a mean towards success. Courses are designed to allow students to manipulate traditional medias such as drawing, painting or sculpture while exploring mixed medium that reflect contemporary styles and movements.
Exposure, research, and cultural analysis is vital to the growth and awareness of an apprentice becoming an artist. Throughout the matriculation of the program, museum visits, lectures, professional artist encounters, and research opportunities all become norms of their experiences here.
As we strive for that goal, students are expected to argue their voice in art through gallery shows, competitions (local, state and national) throughout their entire duration here at I.M. Terrell Academy for STEM and VPA.
