Visual Arts at Kents Hill
Whether in the studio or on the stage, art is all around us at Kents Hill School. Our programs are designed to promote and develop the critical skills of confidence, creativity, and curiosity. In the classroom, students choose from a wide range of courses from introductory to the Advanced Placement (AP) levels. Students are required to take four trimesters of courses in the arts, but most go beyond the requirement with a full two years or more of work in materials such as oil and acrylic paint, pencil and charcoal, wood, clay, and digital printing. We offer an average of 20 elective visual arts courses per trimester, including Environmental Art and Design, Sculpture, Creative Woodworking, New Media, and 3D Design.
A Gallery On-Campus
The Gruss-Bard Gallery at the Bibby and Harold Alfond Dining Commons provides students the opportunity to design, curate, and execute their very own art opening. In addition to a rotation of student, faculty, and alumni work, the gallery showcases work from local and national practicing artists.
