Art at Randolph is a historical and scientific adventure explored in a sensory and emotional context. Students are challenged to develop their expressive abilities alongside our extensive IB Curriculum. Virginia SOLs paired with vocabulary pertaining to the Fine Arts are embedded in grade level lessons Pre K-5. Exposure to a wide range of two dimensional, 3 dimensional, and recycled materials help to shape our creative abilities. At Randolph, we believe that Art is both an enriching practice as well as a language capable of communicating on global scale.
