Students studying Visual Arts at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts learn the elements of art and visual design while also preparing academically for college and for life. They take courses in drawing, painting, sculpture, computer science, and printmaking. Whether they become professional artists or designers or not, Ellington students are exposed to historical and contemporary styles from different cultures to broaden their frames of reference and perspectives. They also learn about the role of art in a democratic society. In the process of visual arts training at Ellington, we work to enhance students’ self-confidence and artistic consciousness, so they become good citizens of the art world and of humankind.
