At Jemicy, we are blessed with a vibrant and diversified visual arts program that allows students to dabble in numerous and varied mediums such as drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, glass fusing, photography, animation, and graphic arts. We encourage our students to explore all areas and venture outside of the box - unafraid of taking risks - even if they are not familiar with the materials or projects.
Integration and cross-curricular projects are incorporated into the arts program to help reinforce and support other areas of learning. Students’ artwork is documented through a digital portfolio that is accessible at any time.
The totality and scope of their talents are showcased at the end of year Art Show. Students who apply and are accepted to visual arts high schools feel very confident and well prepared when they enter.
Visual Arts UPPER SCHOOL
The Arts Department helps students tap into their passion in the field of visual arts and develop real world skills that translate into career paths in the arts. Drawing, painting, fashion design, sculpture, and photography are just some of the medium in which Jemicy upper school students endeavor to express their creative intelligence. Student artists excel in the community and earn awards and competitive scholarships to attend top art colleges; 26% of Jemicy students over the last twelve years produced college art portfolios that augmented their college applications and 12% of Jemicy seniors transitioned to art colleges in the last twelve years with close to $500,000 of scholarships based on the merit of the portfolios of incoming freshman.
