From learning the basic fundamentals of art and exploring the principles of design, to experimenting with various materials, to learning that the history of art is a record of different civilizations and cultures, Detroit Country Day School's fine arts program develops students' abilities often with award-winning results.
Opportunities for artistic expression are unusually rich and varied at Detroit Country Day School. Children have classes in art, in which they experiment, learn technical skills and broaden their aesthetic awareness. The fine arts program exposes students to visual art, photography and technology-based visual arts.
From an early age, students learn the vocabulary and concepts associated with the visual arts. They learn how to use various tools, processes and media. Beginning in the early grades, students develop skills of observation and grow in their ability to describe, interpret, evaluate and respond to the highly visual world ahead of them.
