Loomis Chaffee is celebrating students’ visual art and literary talent this fall with the Emerging Artists and Emerging Writers exhibits, featuring the summer explorations of six student artists and 33 student writers.
As a student of Visual Arts at Loomis, you will find a broad experience across a wide variety of media for every skill level. The Visual Arts Department, located in the Richmond Art Center (RAC) will allow you to pursue your interests in ceramics, painting, photography, printmaking, art history, and various digital media, on state of the art equipment in professional studios. The RAC has wonderful exhibition space, including The Mercy Gallery, for showcasing professional and student works. With a curriculum focused on your individual growth and self-expression, you will learn the fundamentals of technique and design working with our dedicated faculty, who are accomplished artists in their own right, as well as committed professional educators.
Emerging Artists Showcase
Each year the Visual Arts Department invites students to participate in our summer Emerging Artist program. The students spend the summer working on a collection of artwork in their chosen mediums, including painting, drawing, sculpture, video, photography, digital art, and more. This year will look a little different, as we are limiting the number of people who are on campus. However, the show must go one! You are invited to visit the virtual Emerging Artists Showcase right here.
Renaissance Ensemble, comprised of students from six New England prep schools and led by two Loomis Chaffee seniors, presented “The Key to Change,” a video concert to benefit the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Legal Defense Fund.
