The study of art at Hoosac focuses on the enrichment of the student’s knowledge and abilities in the visual arts. Students learn about aesthetics, different artists, art movements, and the use of different media.
The introductory course teaches the fundamentals of drawing, painting, and sculpture. Students are encouraged to explore their creativity and imagination using these different materials.
We regularly plan trips to local museums such as The Clark Art Institute, Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) and the Williams College Museum. Students experience first hand the works created by artists they have learned about in class, and they are also exposed to a variety of painting styles, culturally diverse art, and works by local artists.
