Visual Arts at Avon Old Farms School
Young people with high arts involvement are 4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievements. Americans for the Arts, 2012 An Avon boy who is looking to develop his talents and explore his creativity is given the space, guidance, and encouragement he needs to succeed. The skilled and intuition-focused art department guides students with options for a young man to discover his inner artistic talents.
Our art teachers foster a fun and safe studio environment that encourages experimentation with many types of media and the sharing of artistic inspiration. In addition to academic pursuits, an Avon boy can excel in extra-curricular arts opportunities to hone his skills further.
"An art once served with sincerity will never wholly abandon one."

"There is nothing more important than allowing boys to self-actualize on their own terms. I can think of no greater privilege and responsibility than to participate in shaping a generation of young men; at my core, I want nothing more than to help these boys become the best version of themselves."
