Context and intention are keywords as our art students solve problems, build skills, gain confidence and learn the history of the various media they study in Emma Willard School's visual arts program.
From sight-specific installations around campus to collaborations with the science department, we seek to expand students' understanding of both the function and meaning of art. They are challenged to experience their world in a fresh way, to open their eyes and really see.
One of the most exciting events of the year at Emma Willard School is the Spring Showcase. In this moment, we celebrate the accomplishments of students who have been working all year on Signature capstone projects and Emma Artists performances.
On May 5, Kiki Y. ’24 and Mitsuki N. ’23 were accompanied by Visual Arts Instructors Caroline Valites and Lindsay Slaughter at the Congressional Art Awards Ceremony at Union College, led by Congressman Paul Tonko.
