 ART CLASSES 



 
 
 
 
 
Art Education is designed to expand the students' means of expression and communication, stimulate the imagination, and provide insight into the contributions of others. We strive to stimulate other areas of learning in all students while providing opportunities to identify and cultivate special talents and capabilities.
Philosophy

The art program will provide each student with:

1) Instruction in the basic elements and principles of art.
2) Inspiration for his/her creative and aesthetic needs.
3) Instruction in skills and techniques using a variety of media with experiences in all dimensional modes.
4) Methods for increasing his/her perceptual and motor skill abilities utilizing a variety of approaches.
5) An understanding of the role of the artist - both present and past.
6) The means to interrelate art experiences with other academic areas of study.
7) An opportunity for interaction with other students - their abilities and ideas.
8) Opportunities for public exhibition and competitions on the local, state and national level.
