Georgia Military College’s (GMC) Preparatory School continues to support the Arts with its newest addition of their Visual Arts Department. Prep School Principal, Colonel Pam Grant, says the department is needed to give her students more opportunities to express their creativity.
“We have so many of our kids involved in our Fine Arts Department that I felt like the only thing we were missing in our fabulous program were the visual arts,” said Colonel Pam Grant, GMC’s Prep School principal.
Colonel Grant hired Paige Barlow to be the Middle and High School Visual Arts Director for GMC’s Prep School. For the past 22-years, Barlow has been helping students develop their artistic skills as the Art Teacher at Putnam County High School. She also developed the school’s visual arts program and is excited to get the Prep School’s program off of the ground.
“I’m excited about teaching middle school art, doing the introductory art classes, and finding out what their expertise and interests are,” said Paige Barlow, GMC Prep School’s Middle and High School Visual Arts Director. “For the high school students, I want to focus more on getting their portfolios ready for college if they’re interested in majoring in Art.”
GMC’s Prep students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades will take classes in the new visual arts program. High School students in the Prep School will also be given the choice to take an art class as part of their enrichment course. Barlow’s students will focus on drawing, painting, pottery, print making, sculpting, and photography. Lt. Gen. William B. Caldwell, IV, president of GMC, believes adding visual arts to the prep school’s program will develop more well-rounded students.
“We pride ourselves at Georgia Military College that we develop young men and women of incredible character who are going to be contributing members of society, but one of the things we want them to be is a well-rounded individual who has an appreciation not only for academics and athletics, but also for the Fine Arts,” said Lt. Gen. William B. Caldwell, IV, president of GMC.
Renovations are currently in progress to house The Visual Arts Department and GMC’s bookstore in the bottom floor of the Old Capitol Building located on GMC’s Milledgeville Campus. Three of the four classrooms that are being built will be for the Visual Arts program. Construction is expected to be complete on June 1st. Visual Arts classes will begin next school year in August of 2017.
