Sketches and Strokes
Students at Marist have the opportunity to study all levels of drawing and painting. Introductory classes begin with working from observation and build a solid foundation that includes composition, perspective, and color theory. More advanced classes address conceptual components, expand to include a greater variety of techniques and materials, and help students develop their own artistic voices. Marist offers a yearlong AP class in studio art as well as opportunities for advanced students to pursue specific interests through independent study.
In addition to in-class studio time, students interested in drawing and painting have several opportunities to be involved in extracurricular activities. Marist's Art Club provides after-school studio hours and also supports the school with art-related projects. Art students also submit work to Marist's award-winning visual and literary arts magazine, the Rapier.
