The commute traversed by the student body attending the Williamsburg Charter High School campus, located in the trendy and artistic Williamsburg/Bushwick area of Brooklyn, is one that serves to inspire with its painted buildings and walls.
Taking a mental and physical approach to teaching the wide variety of materials and techniques offered at the WCHS, the Visual Arts department strives to cultivate every student's creative process. By offering a solid foundation and a varied course selection, students are truly able to choose their own artistic path.
With its outstanding studio facilities, as well as a talented, dynamic and dedicated teaching staff, the WCHS provides students with a competitive course catalogue and a college level curriculum designed to empower students with the ability to compete with New York City's best and brightest art students. The combination of an extensive array of materials and opportunities, enables students to create artwork showcasing their talents, skills and abilities -- a forum that allows their voices to be seen and heard.
All WCHS students are required to meet the New York State graduation requirement of earning 2.00 credits in Art. Students who earn 10.00+ credits in the Arts have the opportunity to receive the Chancellor's Arts Endorsed Diploma.
