Visual Arts

From paint and sculpture to photography and design, The Episcopal Academy's Department of Visual Arts encourages critical thinking and creative expression.

Our dedicated faculty are masters in their craft, and believe that a visual arts education must be student-centered and collaborative in spirit.

Episcopal's excellent facilities provide students with every opportunity to build a strong portfolio and develop a personal voice. Students enjoy producing and appreciating visual art in five spacious studios, a darkroom, graphics lab, and wood shop.

Additionally, the Crawford Campus Center Gallery provides the opportunity for students to expand their appreciation of the arts through ongoing exhibitions from both peers and nationally-renowned artists.

Studying art provides me with the courage to challenge my perceptions of the world and make a bold statement.

– Amalie Hipp, Class of 2018
