Students work in a variety of media.
Students' imaginations and creativity flourish in a sunny, well-equipped drawing and painting studio, a ceramics lab, and a digital design studio.
"Who I am today is due to my involvement with Ramona's arts programs. I am now much more confident in myself. The Arts Department supports and encourages me through every decision I make."
The Spring Art Show showcases the drawing, painting, and ceramics production of students in all of the arts classes. Highlights include an exhibition of the concentration sections of seniors' AP portfolios, which are in-depth artistic explorations developed over many months. At the Spring Art show, student artists also serve as "docents" who explain their thinking and artistic process to their guests.
Senior Projects: The entire campus becomes the setting for students' artistic vision when advanced art students collaborate on construction of a work of art that is installed temporarily in a public area of campus.
Through an advanced problem solving process, which also includes creating ideas, consideration of the audience, obtaining approvals, and presenting their work, students connect the skills they have acquired from previous art classes. The tradition of these public works has engendered an atmosphere of pride as students strive to create projects that others will consider interesting and meaningful.
