Houston Visual Art School
The Banff Visual Arts program introduces students to all aspects of the world around them. Through analysis of their environment in terms of color, light, line, texture and space, they develop an increased visual awareness and sensitivity which reflects in their artwork. Students work in a diverse range of media including drawing, painting, prints and sculpture. Visits made to art museums encourage students to perceive their own work in a historical and cultural context.
Visual Arts is included in all grades for the Lower School as additional enrichment activities and as an academic elective in the Upper School. Our Visual Art activities enable students of all abilities and experiences to explore the arts at a higher level.
Each year, students showcase their work as the school is transformed into an art gallery for our annual spring "Visual Arts Showcase." Guests, parents, and friends, are invited to this public viewing – one of the highlights of The Banff School year!
