Visual Arts Overview
The Visual Arts Department believes that every student is an artist and capable of growing through an art experience. We also believe that art promotes the development of fine motor skills, creative problem solving, higher order thinking, and sensitivity to the ideas of others. We also promote inclusivity of all student artists, no matter their skill level, background, or ability. Art provides tools for interpreting life experiences and helps develop a child’s identity and sense of self-worth. Our district's art curriculum follows the National Standards for Visual Arts and focuses on process and experiences, rather than product.
