What Is Art And Design

Art Programs Overview

The Richmond Hill High School visual arts classes explore basic and advanced drawing, the world of ceramics, portfolio design and computer graphics.  To compliment these offerings, an art majors program allows students to pursue three years of art courses to prepare the students for taking the art Regents exam and the submission of a complete portfolio.  In addition to the classes offered at the school itself, the arts department has formed and maintained relations with some of the city’s premier arts institutions that include the MOMA, the Queens Center of the Arts, the Queens Museum of Art, the Jamaica Art Center, the Art Director’s Club – Art League NYC and Town Hall.

 A school wide celebration of our students’ artistic pursuits takes place every Spring during the Art and Music Festival which highlights the achievements of students of every level of artistic ability.
