The visual arts program gives our students the space and instruction they need to experiment, hone their talents, and express themselves. It places an emphasis on drawing and painting, but includes other disciplines, including: watercolors, printmaking, ceramics, woodworking, and graphic design. Participation in outside art competitions is encouraged.
The Calvert Hall Visual Art Program is a hands-on program in studio art, with a foundation based on academic training and observational skills. The program, held in our state-of-the-art classroom/workshop and gallery space, provides the environment for enhanced visual communication, creativity, aesthetic and creative thinking skills, self-discipline, leadership and teamwork. Through their art, students develop their visual perception skills, along with their eye-hand coordination, self-expression, and creative problem solving skills.
 
Our classroom and workshop, modern and spacious facilities, include a woodshop with woodworking tools, a kiln room with two electric fired kilns, and spacious studio space for painting and drawing. Other features include skylights and a powerful ventilation system.
Incoming freshmen who wish to be in the Art program must apply the previous spring, and those selected may continue through all four of their years at The Hall. Students wishing to apply after their freshman year must submit a portfolio for review and be accepted by the program’s Art Director. There is also a half credit art elective class offered to sophomores.
 
As part of the program, every year, the students participate in an end of year art exhibition. Please call 410-825-4266 or email James Doyle, Director, Visual Arts Program for additional information.
