Visual Arts

As facilitators of art, our goal is to maintain a structured system combined with a set curriculum to prepare the stage for creative talent to flourish. Each student is mentored and shown the importance of patience, dedication, and a strong work ethic. Wesleyan offers several different visual art courses for students to explore multiple mediums that will develop artistic skills and creativity at every level.
Create a classroom full of energy and creativity and stimulate a passion for the visual arts.
