Solebury School offers a wide array of visual art classes. Each of these classes is taught by a professional artist. Students can take introductory classes which provide classical training in drawing, painting, ceramics, and photography, and then go on to pursue any of these disciplines at a higher level. For example, we are one of only 10 schools in the country that offers a Life Drawing class, an evening class for advanced students where they learn to draw live models.
Our most advanced students can take AP Studio Art where they can receive college credit while creating a portfolio to show to colleges.
"At Solebury, I realized that I could connect to the arts. I didn’t have to be just ‘good at math.’ A lot of people say great engineers are actually great artists, because they look at the world in a different way. Photography has helped me see the world in new ways, and now I can’t live without it. It was my teacher at Solebury who discovered that quality in me." —KRYSTAL HU '17
