Visual Arts

We INSPIRE artists at Northwest Catholic.

The Visual Arts Program at NWC is committed to inspiring the whole person, creating critical thinkers, and instilling a life-long appreciation for studio art practices and art history. We evoke fresh perspectives, provide an understanding of the role of art in contemporary culture, and encourage creativity and originality. Our program prepares students for admission into high-level arts schools, such as the Parsons School of Design and Savannah College of Art and Design.

With seven different comprehensive visual arts courses, including Advanced Placement Studio Art, we are able to meet the needs of our students. Our goal is to expose our students to the many facets of the art world and, in turn, help them find their own creative voice and explore the horizons of their unique talents.
