Visual Arts Boarding Schools


Many boarding schools excel at the visual arts. Expansive onsite studios and caring teachers are a big part of many boarding schools. While schools offer a variety of visual arts programs, you can expect superb kiln rooms, spacious painting and sculpture studios, as well as the latest technology in photography, graphics and artistic design.

Visual arts boarding schools encourage you to explore your potential.

Choosing the right school with the right arts program

It's best to compare a number of schools' visual arts programs, not only to see which one most closely matches your personal tastes and abilities but also to consider the education you will get beyond the schools' art programs. Check out a variety of schools including schools close to where you want to be along with others that may be out of the area you are hoping for. You may be surprised at what you find!

"You'll find everything from drawing to painting to print-making to ceramics to dance... We never have to take attendance because all the students are so eager to participate."

—Barb Levesque, art teacher, on Rundle College's Fine Arts Day

As you consider visual arts schools on your list, consider whether art is really your highest priority or merely one small part of a well-rounded education. Any school with a visual arts program will allow for time in studio/class as well as practice, creative periods and good old free time!
