Kindergartners through fourth grade students have Art class each week. Students explore the work of master artists and their use of the Elements and Principals of Design. Students then have the opportunity to use what they are learning when creating their own artwork, while having fun at the same time. 

General classes are available in Middle School, with additional opportunities for students who have a passion in this area.

Upper School training occurs in all the various media, including a comprehensive AP course for highly advanced and motivated students. There are a number of gallery-like experiences during the year, and the year culminates with the Prep School Art Show presented by the National Art Honor Society – an evening event that is one of the highlights of the school year at Mount Pisgah. Upper School offerings include Studio Art and Digital Imagery.

 

Mount Pisgah Students Place First

At National Art Honor Society Conference

 

On March 8-9, the Visual Arts Department took five Mount Pisgah students to the 2018 National Art Honor Society Conference in Columbus Georgia.

During opening day of this two-day conference, students participated in an Art Throwdown and a variety of visual art workshops. An Art Throwdown is like a sports event for visual arts. Students enter timed competition challenges from Face-off portrait drawings to ceramic sculptures, figure drawing, plein air painting, digital photography, and collage challenges.

Mount Pisgah took first place in the Collaborative Collage Challenge. Jane Kim and Carly Phares were tasked with creating a completed artwork within 90 minutes using only the supplies provided at the beginning of the challenge. All of our contestants created impressive works of art and experienced art as a competitive sport. 

Day two was spent in workshops at Columbus State University. Students participated in a variety of visual art workshops including life drawing, architectural workshops, metal and jewelry works, and spray paint abstracts.

After two amazing days, the conference concluded with a dinner and awards ceremony to celebrate art education in Georgia and our high school National Art Honors Society students.

The GA Capitol Art Exhibit was held at the Twin Towers in downtown Atlanta on Feb. 21. Four Mt. Pisgah students exhibited at this youth art show; Upper School Students Reagan Kruse and Andrew Sawyer and MS Students Grace McGee and Kamiso Dawe.

SCAD Hong Kong

 

During the summer of 2017, Anita Hunter and Tiffany Searcy, Mt. Pisgah Visual Arts Educators, took students to study at Savannah College of Art and Design, Hong Kong. This was a week long seminar. Both students and educators participated in courses lead by SCAD faculty that were specific to areas of interest. This experience is just one way our students get to experience culture and creativity on an international platform.
