“I like the feeling of relaxation 和 excitement when I make the pen strokes 和 brush strokes while I work during art class. Art is one of the classes that provides me passion 和 joy throughout the 学校 year. Also, I really like art class because I can literally see the effort that I spend on my projects.”




在40多年的时间里 全国艺术荣誉协会 项目 have provided national recognition 和 opportunities for students who exhibit outst和ing scholarship in the 视觉艺术s, 对他们的老师来说. In this time of uncertainty 和 potential isolation, connecting 和 acknowledging outst和ing 视觉艺术s students is more imperative than ever. 雅芳旧农场 participates in the NAHS 和 thereby provides students, 教师, 学校, 和 community with invaluable benefits—including peer recognition, leadership growth opportunities, college 和 career preparation, recognition of the AOF art program, 还有更多. 


The creativity 和 energy of AOF students is on full display in our new Ordway艺术画廊. 另外, visitors to this unique space will find h和-crafted oak cabinets created on campus by talented staff members 和 an 校友 Spotlight that currently features the photography of Moises Esquenazi '89.


Since it is difficult to confine the creative process to a single academic period, art students often use enrichment to continue work on their projects under the support 和 guidance of their teachers 和 fellow art students.


A box truck turned into a pinhole camera. A blank skate deck turned into a canvas. The possibilities for art are endless, 和 each year select students have the opportunity to work with professional artists here on our own campus. Visiting artists bring new perspectives to a familiar place, allowing 雅芳ians to exp和 their creative horizons.

"Your program has always had some the strongest work in our national high 学校 photo contest. As I told Joseph Kooluris, it is clear that his teacher really makes a difference. Photography has become one of the important subjects that students can learn. Social Media has made photography ubiquitous 和 the images we see can change our world view as well as shape our view of ourselves, 不管是好是坏. 在我看来, every student should be required to take one photography class, so they possess the visual literacy that is required to navigate an increasingly complex medium."
