Visual ArtsVisual arts students at Donoho learn to work with a wide variety of tools, art processes and media. By exploring objects and ideas in the world around them, they learn to coordinate their hands, eyes, and minds, and to develop good skills of observation. With every art project, they are encouraged to find opportunities for experimentation and creative problem-solving. Students learn to evaluate works of art and gain an understanding of the visual world.
Lower School students receive art instruction every week, while Upper School students may choose studio art as an elective daily class.
Art teacher Sarah Landrum holds degrees from Emory University (Classics) and Rhode Island School of Design (Painting). She has been teaching at Donoho for nine years and is the mother of alumna Annie Harding, ’09. She lives in Jacksonville with her husband, Dr. Pitt Harding.
