Visual & Fine Arts

The visual arts can be appreciated and created by students from the youngest to the oldest. Studio art and multimedia have a place in every student’s life, whether they are working in a traditional medium like painting or creating original graphic design with computer software. State-of-the-art equipment includes a printing press and two computer labs where students can work on filmmaking and graphic design.

A highlight of the 6th grade experience is the Tallit Project, where students work with both Judaics and Arts faculty to make their own tallit using the batique technique. The experience culminates with a special program where students share the tallit they created with their families. Another highlight is during the senior year, when students sketch, design and paint a class mural onto a wall in school.
