Visual Art education is a critical part of every student’s educational and developmental journey. At The Cove School, students are guided to embrace the joys, struggles and triumphs of art making. Both the process and the results are equally valued. Students explore interesting projects, often inspired by artists, in a variety of mediums such as; watercolors, oil pastels, collages, prints and clay. Examples of typical projects include watercolor technique exercises, succulent and cactus garden painting, gingerbread houses using oil pastels, and line/shape castles inspired by contemporary artist Rob Dunlavey. Through the concentrated focus of art instruction, students build persistence, creativity, ingenuity and confidence.
