Art and Photography

The atmosphere of a class in the Art Department is different from any other class in school. There is a relaxed feeling as students quietly and enthusiastically work at their own projects: pottery, jewelry, drawing, painting, sculpting, jewelry-making, crafts. This studio atmosphere offers a break from the traditional classroom scene.

Music plays in the background in some art classes, and students busily go their own way, working in a number of creative areas. Lectures and demonstrations bring the class together on some days, and guest artists or audiovisual shows offer students a large group learning experience.

Art is an elective program at Capital High, and students can take one, two, three, four, or a number of years of art classes. Students with a serious interest can get into some highly in-depth artistic experiences. Many classes work on local shows and exhibits.

Photography, which focuses on creativity and relaxed yet dynamic art experiences, is also a part of this department.

With so many different kinds and levels of classes offered, the Art Department encourages all students to take at least one course and try their hand at a creative experience. Guaranteed to please!
