Visual arts programming at the Institute strengthens our student's independence and provides the perfect opportunity for our kinesthetic and tactile learners to develop critical skills, including:
Providing a larger context for how art relates to society and humanity, art history lessons incorporate aspects of anthropology, sociology, and history and dive into how art reflects activities in our daily lives. Past featured artists include Georgia O'Keefe, Pablo Picasso, Vincent Van Gogh, Wassily Kandinsky, Frida Kahlo, Henri Matisse, Piet Mondrian, and Andy Warhol.
