Through the study of art, students are taken on a journey of discovery, development, and a quest for creativity. Beginning with the basic principles of art theory and technique, we complement their newfound knowledge with the study of Art History. We believe, to appreciate an art piece, a student must experience the joy of creation.
In addition to using traditional tools and methods to express their creativity, students will also have access to digital tools. Using software programs such as Photoshop and several video editing applications, students will have limitless possibilities to share their ideas and voice through art. Instead of merely participating in digital content, students will become authors and contributors. These skill sets will benefit them in both the Fine Arts and Drama program here at RHMS.
Painting, sculpting, and drawing provide an outlet for emotions to surface in a positive way. At RHMS, we provide a well-rounded education in fine arts. This provides students with a solid appreciation of the world around them.
Each year the student body, both Elementary and Montessori, partakes in their very own art festival, The RHMS Art Café. The school is transformed into an art viewing gallery to show off students' masterpieces created throughout the year. In addition to the gallery of exceptional artwork, there are also photography projections, as well as live music performed by our talented students. Awards are given out to each grade and winners have their work framed and displayed on the walls of our school! Parents and teachers come out to show their support and view the beautiful creativity of student art throughout the halls, classrooms, and gymnasium.
