Welcome to the Arts Department

  • Art Overview:

    The visual arts are a critical component of our growth as human beings. Whether we are viewing or producing art we are developing skills of problem-solving, communication, decision-making and discipline. Our art program has a comprehensive curriculum in which students have experiences in making art (art production), develop skills in expressing ideas about the nature of art, both orally and through writing (aesthetics), analyze and form judgments about art works (art criticism), and appreciate the significance of art through time in human cultures (art history). 

    In all art courses offered, student achievement is measured through observed growth in skills, work-habits, problem-solving ability, care and safe use of supplies and equipment, cooperation and understanding of others, and the timely submission of all class work, homework, and written assignments.
