The visual arts program expands a student’s education in a way no other area of education touches on. The visual arts offer students the opportunity to explore works of art for understanding and to use a variety of materials for self expression.
Students are taught to be self-directed learners and to assess their own work. The objectives in an art lesson or project are to challenge, gain skill and increase knowledge. Each grade level is designed to build on knowledge gained in previous years. Students learn the elements of art and the principals of design. Students learn the language of art and how to be an art critic. Along the way students are continually guided to see the connection between time, place and people.
