Even though we are not in the business of making artists, almost all of the work students do is meant for public consumption. Their work is seen, critiqued, and evaluated; people respond to their work and in return students evaluate the responses. This public discourse is challenging, but it results in growth and stretching which is especially important in the development of mind, body and soul. Moving through our curriculum in a logical progression from foundational courses that set the stage, then building upon that foundation in advanced electives, allows students to develop at an appropriate level.
To lift a line from Gladiator- “what we do in life echoes in eternity;” we are invested in the process of looking at those echoes and we are trying to make a few of our own. Ars Longus, Vita Brevis (art is long, life is short) - Lawrenceville is honored to maintain this long lasting and important tradition.
