Visual Arts

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.

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.
