Middle School Visual Arts

Our visual arts program inspires our young artists to develop their creative expression.

We integrate our progressive visual arts curriculum into your child’s education with academic electives and after-school activities throughout the middle school experience.

Dickinson Visual Arts Endowment

The Dickinson Visual Arts Endowment was launched in 2021. It recognizes the school’s impressive K-12 visual arts department by providing resources to inspire and enhance the educational experience of Harker’s visual art students. “This endowment will strengthen the school’s connection to the global art community by facilitating the expansion of our artist residency program,” said Joshua Martinez, visual arts department chair. “Our students will be able to work with a diverse group of artists who will open them up to new and exciting perspectives.”

The endowment’s inaugural event was the residence in January 2022 of Britta Clausnitzer, an artist, curator and museum educator living and working in Berlin.
