The mission of the AMSA Art Department is to stimulate the imagination of our students and teach them to solve problems creatively. Our 6th-8th grade classes combine Art with History and are taught chronologically in order to match the AMSA History and Literature curriculum. Courses offered to the Upper School students are designed to deepen and expand upon the student’s understanding of Art across periods of time and through various cultures.
