MIDDLE School Visual Arts
Behind every creative professional is a young person who was inspired to express thoughts, ideas and feelings with visual arts. We integrate our progressive visual arts curriculum into your child’s education with academic electives and after-school activities throughout the middle school experience.
Visual Arts Offerings
While our academic elective courses are the backbone of our visual arts program, we offer robust after-school visual arts activities including workshops, clubs and open studio time.

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.
