The ECA Visual Arts Department offers students the opportunity to work with professional artists in a studio setting. Twenty-eight foundation and special topics courses are offered each year in a variety of media, including sculpture, printmaking, video, darkroom photography, digital photography, painting and drawing.

The art department constantly cultivates the exchange of creative ideas with critiques, lectures, gallery and museum trips and visiting guest artists. Art students expand their visual communication vocabulary, critical thinking and problem solving skills, independent initiative, and craftsmanship and technical abilities, while making personally expressive artwork.

ECA Visual Art Dept Summer Packet 2015-16


Attention Seniors and Juniors:

This fall we have many art schools doing presentations and looking at portfolios. We would like to invite juniors to the presentations as some of the schools may not return next fall when they are seniors. Understanding that juniors would have to leave their integrated study class for an hour, we asked them to choose no more than four schools to see this semester. Juniors have signed up to attend certain presentations, but must first check in with their IS teacher for attendance. We will do our best to insure that the presentations do not go over 45 minutes, which means students should be back in their IS class by 2pm.
