The Visual Arts Department periodically seeks individuals over age 18 within the Ranney community to model in the art studio in costumed or street clothes for 1 to 3 hours per session. Please see our volunteer form or contact Art Teacher Pam Shipley at pshipley@ranneyschool.org.

Visual Arts

Here at Ranney School, the Visual Arts are an essential part of curriculum at every level of learning from Early Childhood through Grade 12. Our goal is to cultivate each child’s unique capacities for expression, communication and discovery. These qualities blossom with hands-on experiences in the arts provided at each stage of development. While each phase of artistic development sparks new insights into materials and ideas, it is quite common for interests, proclivities and even abilities to fluctuate over time – this is the direct result of our students making new observations, gaining new understanding and attaining new skills.
 
Ranney students are therefore encouraged to try unfamiliar art forms throughout the continuum of their education while also deepening their understanding of familiar ones. These forms include ceramics, drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, design, animation, sculpture, filmmaking and architecture. Experiential learning of all sorts is crucial to the process of gaining knowledge and understanding – and so in addition to studio art practice, students in the Lower, Middle and Upper School divisions are introduced to the abundant and diverse cultural resources available beyond the borders of our campus. Upper School students also have the opportunity to apply for our National Art Honor Society.
 
Find examples of our students' artistic expressions in the Lower, Middle and Upper School galleries herein.
