Art classes at KAS are often spent with students out of their seats: communicating, problem solving and working collaboratively.
Learning happens in the act of making⸺the process is more important than the product. By emphasizing the process and encouraging exploration and divergent thinking, students discover there is no one right answer to a problem.
When beginning a new project, we often start with a lesson in art history. We move on to a class discussion of the artwork and the concepts found therein, learning how to speak about art and think critically about what we see.
Our student artists explore a wide variety of media and techniques, becoming versed in the elements of art and design, understanding the power of utilizing them to communicate ideas.
