Visual Arts

Goodpasture takes pride in the diversity of its Visual Arts program. Elementary art classes lay the groundwork for the more in-depth high school classes. Students are given opportunities to express their creativity not just in the drawing or painting side of art, but also in the technological realm of video and audio production. With highly qualified instructors and the most advanced supplies and equipment, visual art students are given every advantage when it comes to developing their talents.
