At Grove School, we hope that creativity is a part of our campus’ culture and one of our goals is for art to be everywhere. In addition to sculptures that can be found throughout the campus, the school also offers students the opportunity to take a range of electives in the Fine Arts.
Students can also participate in after-school clubs that are geared towards painting, photography, and other artistic activities. And in addition to the school’s annual Evening of the Arts, the school presents Art Fairs for the entire community to attend, in which the work of students is showcased and on display. We want all of our students to explore the arts – for some, this can be a creative outlet, and for others it can be essential therapy. Our Arts program is proud to present students with so many options.
Grades: 9, 10, 11, 12
This course will teach students the fundamentals behind working with low fire clay to make functional wares using various techniques. They will learn how to actively start incorporating the principles and elements of visual art into works that they design themselves and how to articulate these ideas into critique. The students will be instructed in hand building: slab, coil and pinch pots, as well learning to throw successful pieces on the potter’s wheel.
