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.

Mariboe Art Gallery

Located in the Swig Arts Center, our Mariboe Gallery hosts provocative and engaging exhibits by visiting artists and our own students and faculty.
