Every student has the potential to be an artist.
At Peddie, we are committed to developing that potential. Our faculty offers guidance diverse approaches including Drawing, 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. Featuring field trips each term to venues ranging from The Metropolitain Museum of Art to Chelsea art galleries, our visual arts program inspires young artists to develop their own creative voices.

It's what they do
Our visual arts faculty are working artists; when they are not in the classroom, they are seeking out opportunities to perform and develop their crafts. Here's where our visual arts faculty were this summer:
Teaching AP Art History can take you almost anywhere! Watkins spent time in Europe visiting museums, galleries, prehistoric and historic sites.
Claudio Middleton's summer travel to Patagonia with his daughter Lucia was "by far, the best hands-on learning opportunity" he has ever had.
Chen spent time sketching outdoors in New Jersey Parks this summer.
