Themes for painting class include the landscape of northern Canada and the warm Amante style of Mexico. Other assignments include capturing the likeness and spirit of the Roman acqueducts and galley ships using the wet-on-wet watercolor method. Students also attempt veil paintings of fiery volcanoes, a challenging technique that demands much concentration, attention, and patience.
Art projects consist of self portraits, stained-glass windows, beeswax sculpting, and set painting. Students also develop the rudimentary skills for calligraphy, tessellation, and black and white shading.
