Lower School visual arts challenges students to think about and respond to themselves and their world of experiences in creative ways. Diverse thinking, creative exploration, appreciation of uniqueness, and tolerance for the ideas and expressions of others are encouraged in each class. The “Artful Thinking” approach of observing, inquiring, questioning, finding complexity, and comparing and connecting is integrated with social studies and science content areas. Students are exposed to a wide variety of media and techniques and enjoy regular art-making experiences.
The Middle School visual arts curriculum uses cross-curricular connections in history, science, and math, which helps to boost critical thinking, observation, and visual literacy skills. Indian Creek Middle School students explore socially relevant topics such as diversity through art and the study of individual artists. Emotional development is promoted through the arts by providing a safe space and a creative outlet. 
The Upper School students have further opportunities for education, enrichment, skill development, and individual projects in the visual arts. Upper School students experience interdisciplinary learning and the application of the visual arts in science, math, athletics, and diversity, equity, and inclusion. Serious visual art students can join the National Art Honor Society and continue to develop their skills through more dedicated focus and attention to art study. Indian Creek School student art has been shown in the Walters Art Gallery in Baltimore and Maryland Hall in Annapolis, and student works adorn the hallways and walls of the school building.
