Visual Arts

Every student has the potential to be an artist.

At Peddie, we are committed to developing that potential. Our faculty offers guidance in fields as diverse as Drawing and Design, Painting, Sculpture, Installation Art, Photography, Architecture, and Film. Students also have opportunities to view exhibitions from visiting artists and display their own work in the Mariboe Gallery. Coupled with trips to staples like the Metropolitan Museum of Art, our visual arts program enables young artists to set their own stride.

Kicking off this year's Mariboe Gallery exhibition schedule is Becca Lowry, a dynamic young artist whose current body of work, which she calls Shields, fall somewhere between painting and sculpture. The students of the Honors Studio class will conduct a panel discussion with Becca in the gallery to understand these objects and probe the depths of her creative process.
