The Visual Arts Program at the McCallum Fine Arts Academy currently focuses on the development of students’ technical skills and critical thinking in a variety of media. The visual art aspect of the larger integrated curriculum emphasizes the application of art elements and principles of design in art production, the study of art history and diverse cultural heritages, and the development of visual discrimination and judgment through art criticism and aesthetics.
Of five Austin high school students selected for the 2017 People’s Gallery Exhibit at the Austin City Hall, three are students at The Academy. Works on display at Link & Pin will include UIL All State pieces and recipients of national scholastic art and writing gold and silver awards.
