Visual and Media Arts

Visual and Media Arts


This Pathway provides students with an introduction to many areas of Art and Design including Drawing/Painting, Graphic Communications, Pottery, Jewelry, and Digital Photography.

Your student will gain knowledge and skills in three-dimensional art forms such as ceramics and jewelry, and two-dimensional art such as drawing/painting and digital photography. The art elective courses will strengthen appreciation for the arts and help the students develop a diverse portfolio of artwork.

The senior project in the Visual Arts Pathway will encourage student participation in the art community outside of the school environment. Your student will experience preparing artwork for display and participating in an individual or group art show.

Each student will develop and maintain a digital portfolio and a physical portfolio containing their artwork with examples showing personal growth in the subject.

There are several ways to complete this pathway, including fulfillment of their A-G requirement.  In order to receive your cord, it is REQUIRED you contact the Visual Art department chair by the end of your JUNIOR YEAR to ensure all requirements will be met.
