The Gail Keenan Art Gallery furthers the mission of Coast Episcopal School: fostering a lifelong love of learning while enhancing our longstanding emphasis on both academic excellence and the arts. The mission of the art gallery is to accompany and enhance arts education at CES and its connection to the development of the whole child.
The gallery provides a visual space for the students to nurture and express their artistic talents and "experience" themselves as creative contributors to our world. It serves as a teaching resource to enable students to make connections between art and life, while expanding learning opportunities through the robust visiting artists program. Through exhibiting works of regional artists, the gallery serves the community at large and increases awareness of the broad education offered at Coast Episcopal School.
The Gail Keenan Art Gallery brings artists from local and regional areas to engage with the students allowing them to better understand themselves and to foster a lifelong appreciation for the arts.
