Art education is integrated into both the general studies and Judaic programs and uses a multitude of techniques to engage the students. Students explore many different genres and live art history by making hands-on reproductions from the likes of Monet, Chagall, Georgia O’Keefe, Christo, Andy Warhol, contemporary First Nations artists and many more.
While not graded, the effort and enthusiasm with which students participate is examined. Our objective is to help students appreciate history and Jewish identity and values through the beauty and creativity of the visual arts, as well as to foster a lifelong appreciation for and enjoyment of art.
