In the Visual Arts Department our goal is to impart in our STudents visual awareness and acuity.
我们看,我们做的,我们讨论了在追求感悟人生的基本问题都:我是谁?为什么我在这里?我在哪里可以从何而来?什么是我的目的是什么?为什么事情看起来他们的方式?如果他们看了有什么不同?我们将通过修改,分析工艺高值,和大量艰苦的工作。有时这三部曲获得在今天的即时满足,我们失去了我们通过多任务扩展对焦能力的快节奏的世界漠不关心。因此,我们所有的课程都涉及一些历史分析,它们都需要以某种形式或另一种创作。

Even though we are not in the business of making artists, almost all of the work students do is meant for public consumption. Their work is seen, critiqued, and evaluated; people respond to their work and in return students evaluate the responses. This public discourse is challenging, but it results in growth and stretching which is especially important in the development of mind, body and soul. Moving through our curriculum in a logical progression from foundational courses that set the stage, then building upon that foundation in advanced electives, allows STudents to develop at an appropriate level.

The overarching emphasis will be on seeing clearly and creating interesting visual solutions to specific challenges. Course units will include: The Creative Process, Line, Volume, Perspective, and Color. Through critique and revision ideas will be refined and improved. Everyone can make images; the goal of the course will be to refine that process in order to make more informed decisions. Work in this class is foundational in nature and it will inform all aspects of a STudent's education, especially in areas that require design, planning, analysis of results and creative thinking. This course is a prerequisite for all other electives within the department. A $50 fee will be applied to cover course materials. Terms: T1 or T2 or T3; Forms: III or IV or V

  • VA303 - Video Journalism

    Video Journalism combines the skill of capturing a moment, with that of visual storytelling. It is about effective communication and the crafting of stories worth sharing. Early classes will focus on composition skills with close consideration for what it takes to create shots that are impactful. Storytelling will be explored in detail through the use of storyboarding—the development of ideas through brainstorming and discussion. As foundational skills fall into place we will begin development of shooting and editing skills and learn about the powerful digital tools that can transform an idea into a finished video. Students will develop an understanding for the importance of rhythm and pacing as they get hands on with professional editing software Adobe Premiere and iMovie. Studio shooting and green screen use will be explored. Students will embed themselves in the study of video journalism and learn just what it takes to find and craft a story. At the end of the course, each student will have produced a series of high quality video edits that relate directly to their Lawrenceville experience. The content they create will be broadcaST in our highly popular video news show. Terms: T1 or T2 or T3; Forms: III or IV or V; Prereqs: VA200 or VA300
  • VA304 – Technical Design & Digital Fabrication

    This project based course introduces students to the design and build process with digital fabrication technologies. Through a series of hands-on design-based projects, students will learn the process of taking an original design idea from concept to finished artifact. Essential to the successful completion of any project is an understanding of Design Thinking methodology and the ability to communicate ideas graphically. Students study the various steps involved in the development of a design from conceptualization to presentation. They learn how to communicate graphically by studying computer-aided drafting and 3D computer modeling, which, in turn, enables them to generate the data necessary to run digital fabrication equipment. Individual research and writing will be used as cognitive tools to STrengthen concepts and develop critical thinking skills.
