The study of art enables one to learn the history, techniques, and processes of making objects and images that have meaning. Art is a means of visual expression and communication, as well as a means of developing visual literacy. Students learn to manipulate a broad range of media with confidence and intent.
The Tremaine Art Gallery, located in the Main Building, features exhibits of well-known artists who work with students throughout the year. Additionally, art and photography is exhibited throughout the School. The Hotchkiss Film Club also hosts the Hotchkiss Film Festival every spring.
