The Painting curriculum, at POP Art, fosters imagination and creativity via skill-based instruction, critical analysis, creative expression, and aesthetic appreciation.
Through a variety of classes in still-life, landscape, figure painting, and non-representational ways of creation, students examine themes in investigative painting, traditional portrayal, abstraction, surrealism, and conceptual approaches.
As they advance through the program, students are encouraged to develop their own voice and particular interests.
At the advanced level, every student is given a one-on-one mentoring.
Students' artwork are displayed and/or auctioned in annual art shows, providing them an opportunity to learn about curation and monetizing one's work.
The music curriculum improve students' knowledge of music through musical activities such as performing, singing, playing instruments, composing, listening, musical engineering, and recording with the newest technology.
