Note: Although the School maintains a computer lab for student use, students must have continual access to a laptop computer. Contact the School for the minimum hardware and software specifications. The School affirms that a theoretical and working understanding of the historical meanings and studio applications of the human image are critical in the education of Visual Art and Art History students. To develop such an understanding, Art courses often utilize images of clothed and unclothed human figures and, in certain studio classes, live nude models.
