Visual Arts

Our students are exposed to many forms of fine art over four years at ANC. Our visual arts department offers courses in photography, drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, graphic design, stained glass, and more.

Freshman year, participation in our arts program is a requirement; students study the fundamentals of design, exploring the language of art through a number of different mediums. Sophomore year, students can continue to explore various concentrations, or they can begin to emphasize and develop skills in a selected medium, such as drawing and painting or sculpture and ceramics.

In junior and senior years, arts courses are electives. Students can take courses in photography, stained glass, printmaking, and graphic design, or they can participate in our rigorous Visual Arts Portfolio.
