Art shows throughout the year feature work by Milton students. In the Mid-Year and End-of-the-Year Student Art Shows, Milton students exhibit their work in the Arts Commons of the Kellner Performing Arts Center. Student art projects are also showcased in Milton’s Nesto Gallery and viewed on the walls of our academic buildings and Student Center.

Making Art, Using Every Sense
At Milton, art is everywhere, and that creation begins with a course of study incorporating hands-on learning, problem-solving, creativity, and expression.Talented and passionate faculty—accomplished artists in their own right—guide students in traditional, contemporary, and cross-disciplinary means of art-making. Foundational technical skills empower students to think creatively and critically, as they work through many, varied concept-and-design challenges.With introductory and advanced options in drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, architecture, sculpture, and ceramics—augmented by technology-based classes in digital imaging, film, and media—students focus on “making and creating” in large, state-of-the-art studio spaces, in Milton’s Art and Media Center. Faculty support both breadth and depth in their students’ learning, eliciting passion and skill in the novice artist, while challengingadvancedstudentswithsophisticatedanddevelopedartisticabilities. Exhibition is a key part of the visual arts program. Hosting three major student art exhibitions each year, the program is enhanced by the renowned Nesto Gallery, which hosts professional and accomplished artists who also work with students in master classes throughout the year.
