Visual Arts

Art in Full Bloom

Art stays in full bloom in our sun-filled studios, where PreK3 through Upper School students develop skill and artistic expression under the tutelage of professional artists active in the Baton Rouge community. Instruction combines art history and hands-on studio experiences where creativity and critical thinking flourish. Students with an affinity for the visual arts may continue to build skill through our after-school enrichment offerings that support and enhance the day program. Outside of the art studio, opportunities abound to showcase work on campus and in local juried art exhibits.

Lower School students develop creativity by applying the elements and principles of art and art history through explorations in drawing, painting, clay, collage, and other media.  Focusing on the elements of principles and design, ceramics, and sculpture, the Middle School art program allows students to develop the ability to communicate personal ideas through art vocabulary, technical skills, and artistic expression. In Upper School, students refine their talents in intensive studio art courses, beginning with Art I and advancing to AP Studio Art. Each year, Dunham graduates receive offers to continue their training in highly selective arts programs at colleges and universities across the country.

He has made everything beautiful in its time.
