Visual Arts

Our diverse group of arts instructors offer students at our all-boys all-boarding school a wide range of experience in the visual arts having exhibited their work both in the US and Internationally.
Disciplines include painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, photography and filmmaking. Traditional principles of design are emphasized while teachers work to build each student's practical skill set and sensitivity to the world around them.
Students have the unique opportunity to display their work in the Baker Gallery as well as Woodberry's award winning student publication, The Talon. Our in person classes take several field trips to world-class collections including the Smithsonian National Gallery of Art, Smithsonian American Museum of Art and Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

Woodberry has a growing number of alumni continuing their studies at some of the best art schools around the country and moving on to become professional, teaching and working artists.  Whether you have previously taken art classes or are interested in studying the subject for the first time, Woodberry’s Visual Art Program will help you reach your full potential.
