HSA ART & DESIGN

“Through the visual arts, children are able to explore their inner creative capacity and appreciation of life’s meaning and beauty. They develop a necessary sensibility to express themselves and to cope with today’s global problems.”

HSA offers a wide variety of classes in the visual arts fostering individual creativity and expression. Classes include a full spectrum of media, including digital art, drawing, filmmaking, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture; taught by a faculty of world-class professional artists and guest lecturers.

Annually, the Art & Design Department hosts two group exhibitions of the students’ work at the school along with providing several opportunities for students to participate in Harlem community gallery showings. Beyond the curriculum, HSA seeks to cultivate an appreciation of the arts within the Harlem community by presenting guest artist and faculty exhibitions that are open to the public.
