The art program at G.S.B. is primarily discipline-based; the philosophy of which is that artistic skills and techniques can be taught through clear criteria, while also maintaining allowance for personal expression. A balance between creativity, imagination, & self-expression are nurtured, while providing guidance in artistic techniques or concepts such as spatial depth or values. Also incorporated throughout the program is an art history component, which conveys not only exemplars of the use of techniques, but also most importantly, the ideas, thoughts, or concepts the artists were “discussing” within their artwork.
