Animation and Design

Engaging Head, Hand, and Heart.

The Visual Arts Department at St. George’s School empowers student-artists to investigate their lives through personal inquiry.  Boys explore themes of self, which fosters independence and a fearless attitude towards creating new possibilities. Students can choose from a variety of classes including Printmaking, Ceramics, Sculpting, Animation, Computer Graphics, Video, Painting, and Drawing. There are also a number of clubs available for those who are interested in delving deeper.

To date, we have hosted 16 Artists-in-Residence who have each been selected based on how their work relates to the themes being explored in class. Artists share their creative process — from inception to completion — by creating their projects concurrently with our boys.
