Visual Arts

The visual arts program at CSW inspires and challenges every student–of any skill level–to dig deep and access their artistic voice. Our teachers help students uncover and nurture that potential with strong foundation and advanced courses in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, filmmaking and digital art.

Our art facilities boast studio spaces, darkrooms, a multimedia lab, large-scale printers, pottery wheels and a kiln. With more than 50 courses to choose from, students can try their hands at making a horror film, wearable art or an eco-sculpture out of found natural materials.

Courses are designed to help students develop visual literacy, gain high levels of skill and hone the ability to critically evaluate creative work.

Assignments often require students to explore different approaches, encouraging them to take creative risks and become innovative problem solvers.

Students who wish to pursue higher education in the arts are regularly admitted into the top art schools in the nation, including Cooper Union, Rhode Island School of Design, Art Institute of Chicago and Massachusetts College of Art.
