Barrie MUS Art teacher Sunny Gough reached out to fellow artists from the D.C. metropolitan area to bring the artistic visions of Middle and Upper School students to life on a new mural to adorn the campus.
Barrie’s visual arts faculty provide innovative approaches that engage talented students in creative fields, including digital photography, ceramics, illustration, sculpture, printmaking, architecture, and art history. Through exploring art concepts, students learn to use professional art tools and materials such as charcoal, watercolor and acrylic paint, the potter’s wheel, the printing press, and soldering irons. The Art House provides open studio space and gives students the opportunity to work on their individual projects in a creative environment. The Barrie faculty assists students, offering their support and insight.
Barrie graduates have attended such noteworthy art schools as The Corcoran College of Art and Design, The Art Institute of Chicago, Savannah College of Art and Design, and the highly regarded graphic design program at Cornell University.
