FINE ART DEPARTMENT OVERVIEW
At I.M. Terrell’s Academy, the department of Art nurtures their appretncies in expressing how artists 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 means towards success.
Courses are designed to allow students to manipulate traditional media such as drawing, painting, or sculpturing along with modern studies within art practices. In addition, students will use modern technology such as 3D printing as well as produce tasks that will align with STEM programs.
At the end of their freshman year, students will select a major (i.e. drawing, painting, photography, graphic design, printmaking, or 3D disciplines) to study for the remainder of their matriculation through the academy, leading into Advanced Placement studio courses and senior internships.
Exposure, research, and cultural analysis is vital to the growth and awareness of a student becoming an artist. Throughout their matriculation of the program; museum visits, lectures, professional artist encounters, and research opportunities will become norms of their apprenticeship.
Our goal is to provide an environment that nurtures creativity while eliminating the boxes in which our minds are naturally contained so that we may cultivate the future creators of our society.
