Visual Arts

Culver's balanced curriculum addresses the student's need for meaningful encounters with the Visual Arts through a variety of introductory and advanced courses in two- and three-dimensional media. Students may take a variety of classes or choose to pursue a course of study leading to graduation with Honors in either Visual Arts or Photography.

 

The self-directed nature of Culver's Visual Arts program allows students to ponder singular questions with multiple correct solutions, to maintain the vital link to our cultural legacy, and participate in the fundamental need for personal expression that is the hallmark of artistic practice.

 

In addition to fostering a student-centered navigation between the technical aspects of art-making and creative expression, the Visual Arts affirms its place as an accessible and vital link between the Humanities and the Arts by providing a complement of Art History courses with the option for Advanced Placement. Exhibitions of student and professional work are common during the school year and are supported by an artist residency program that brings artists to the Culver community to meet and work with students of all levels of practice. Culver also draws on its proximity to major museum collections by sponsoring multiple trips to such cities as Chicago, Indianapolis, and South Bend.

 

Graduates who have completed Honors in the Visual Arts or Photography have been accepted to a variety of colleges and universities, including the College of the Art Institute of Chicago, Rochester Institute of Technology, Rhode Island School of Design, Ringling School of Art and Design, Pratt, the Maryland Art Institute, and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.
