Creativity is in Our nature
Mountain Academy’s Art Program provides students across all divisions with the opportunity to investigate, innovate, and interpret the nature of place.
Beginning in our Early Childhood Program, students explore new avenues for creative expression that grow in complexity from year to year. Mountain Academy takes pride in our community of creators and we encourage our students to follow their creative passions without boundaries and expand their artistic abilities into the newest dimensions.
Visual Arts on the
Teton Valley Campus
The Teton Valley Campus partners with Teton Arts Council, a local community arts program. Classes travel to the center for art classes every other week. Multi-media art is incorporated in a variety of other classes such as Middle School Maker and Kindergarten through 8th grade Project Lab.
Visual and Performing Arts on the
Jackson Campus Campus
Jackson Campus students learn how to communicate, engage, and express curiosity through the study of music.
The Performing Arts program empowers students to experience theater as a form of self-expression and communication. We do so by providing students with a formal theater education in addition to the exploration of learning how to present, articulate, and interact with an audience.
The Visual Arts program is rooted in freedom of expression by providing students with the space to be artists and to fully immerse themselves in the creative process.
Creative Minds Come to Life on the Jackson Campus
Student Art in Our Community
Community Bee Project
“The Hive” was a collaboration using science and math to explore the questions: What can we learn from the bee community? And: How do we measure, calculate, and simplify the perimeter and area of a hexagon? A variety of Middle and Upper School students used charcoal to best depict the various textures of honeybees in black and white.
This piece was installed in the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming.
Wilson Bridge Mural
Mountain Academy 9th and 10th graders worked with the Snake River Fund in 2018 to paint the piers of the Wilson Bridge.
This piece can still be found under the Wilson Bridge in Wilson, Wyoming.
Cow in Motion
This mural was painted by Wyoming’s American Institute of Architects chapter with additional help from Mountain Academy art students. Spanning the length of the underpass, Upper School students added whimsical, colorful graphics to the monochrome stencil.
The mural is located near the entrance of the Jackson Campus off Wyoming Highway 22.
